NotesComplicated thriller in which Vietnam Vet played by Hurt now works as a janitor. The building in which he works has the offices of an infamous Vietnamese who is murdered. Hurt pretends to have seen more than he has though we are not sure what he has seen to impress a TV journalist he has a crush on. The character played by Hurt has a father who uses a wheelchair. One could infer this is the result of another war but there's no detail. Interesting character driven film with good performances.
