War of Babylon

Lord of War: Rather like Casino and Scarface, in that all three relate to amoral men who take advantage of a specific human weakness, who prosper, but who then find events overtaking them and are, one way or another, let down or betrayed. Nicholas Cage is not entirely forgiven for "The Wicker Man," but the healing is beginning.

ETA: Just found out Nicholas Cage is a Coppola. Don't know if that explains anything but it's interesting.

Movie count for 2010: 34
