Thanks for the dates and links!

I just saw this, it's a really interesting take on mixing documentary-confessional narration with drama/adventure. The awful statistics on small arms smuggling being dominated by the 5 permanent member nations on the UN Security Council is true, the situations where they're shown dumping guns on warlords are completely true to what's been going on since the cold war. This is the sort of thing news broadcasters 'censor' by avoidance - because most people don't find these facts very palatable. But I do recommend you watch it, Jared's fantastic as Nicholas Cage's brother, & they are really interesting to watch together.

For a much more brutal (short film, extreme violence) take on the blood diamond traffic in Sierra Leone, check out "The Diamond Life" on GNN.tv

But PLEASE, do not watch this if you are at all sensitive to violence on film. The footage in this short film is REAL, not acted. This one's just ugly news, not entertainment. It's not fun to watch, but it is the truth.

Here's an interview I just found, and an excerpt from it comparing the role of Vitaly with Harry Goldfarb (his character in Requiem for a Dream). I just rented Requiem and saw it for the first time this week, I was really interested in seeing Leto in a lead role after watching Lord of War. It's an amazing, terrifying movie, I've been having nightmares from it but I highly recommend it. Just be prepared.

Jared's interview: http://movies.about.com/od/lordofwar/a/lordofwar091305.htm

Quote:
On Leaving ‘Vitaly’ Behind at the End of the Day: Leto said he was able to leave Vitaly behind him on the set a lot more than he could with other characters he’s played. “It still affected me greatly. But I mean there is a relationship for sure, I felt some kind of parallel with my character Harry Goldfarb in ‘Requiem for a Dream’ and this character. They seem like they could be distant cousins. They lived in the same neighborhood, probably five, ten blocks from one another. There was definitely a parallel there.”

On Playing Another Drug Addict: “I think I remember from the offset I said, ‘I’ve visited this territory. This isn’t for me.’ And then I read the script and I said, ‘You know, this is completely something different. This is a whole new life.’ And there’s a similarity there but I thought it was an interesting parallel to play, as far as doing work on the character.”


I like this interview because it's less about who Jared Leto is, who he's dating, etc. and more about what goes on in the film, and what approach went into making the film, which is more interesting I think - background info that can add to your appreciation of the movie. But it does go on toward the end to let Jared talk about 30 Seconds to Mars and other things he's doing, too!

I saw Lord of War on DVD. Jared was pretty funny in that. He's a good actor Smile
