Whenever I call you AMIGO

Eventually you might hear me shilling a documentary I’m trying to finish called THEM THAT WORK about John Sayles and the impact that his film MATEWAN had on my home state of West Virginia (ok – you just heard it). One of the things I was trying to show with that project is how great John Sayles is. And he’s still great. His last film AMIGO is now available for free on HULU. I would encourage you to see it commercial free somewhere else (maybe Netflix or just buy the DVD), but it is on HULU.

It’s intertwined with his recent novel A MOMENT IN THE SUN. I would tell you how great the book is, except I bought the book and haven’t read it. From interviews and the trailer below, you can see that it’s a story of the Philippine-American War. It was shot in the Philippines with an incredible native cast – like most of his films.

Sayles does two things so well – tell authentic stories about people and places you probably would not go in your life & he tells them in interesting ways to interesting conclusions that Hollywood doesn’t give you.

If you enjoy the trailer below – you can see the film on Hulu, or Netflix, or on Amazon.


This blog is a quick look at Indie films you can catch on Video-On-Demand through such services as Amazon.com, Netflix, IndieFlix, and much more.
