Under Fire (1983) starring Nick Nolte Blu Ray (Eureka!)

This gripping entry in the 1980s journalist-amid-political-instability cycle is marred slightly by its love triangle aspect. Nonetheless, it still works well as a depiction of the chaos and devastation of guerrilla warfare and features fine performances by Nick Nolte, Gene Hackman and Ed Harris.

Salvador (1986) dir: Oliver Stone Blu Ray (Eureka!)

This harrowing account of the real-life experiences of photojournalist Richard Boyle (played by James Woods) will truly jolt the viewer out of their complacency about American foreign policy. It's a must-see film - albeit one which you might not wish to face going through a second time.
