One of the few true mavericks of American cinema, writer-director John Sayles has never been afraid of dabbling in political themes; and 'Men With Guns', for all its magic realist trappings, is no different. Set in an unnamed Latin American country, it follows Dr Fuentes on a journey from political naivet  to a despairing state of knowledge about his homeland. By not identifying the setting SaylesÕ universalises the horror. This tragedy is not about casting the blame on identifiable groups. Rather, as the title says, simply put it down to men with guns.
