A film for everyone with many unsuspecting turns., 19 June 2012
Author: Stuart from United States

I had the opportunity to see Collaborator at the Newport Beach International Film Festival and the New York City premiere. It's a thrilling movie that takes the viewer on a roller-coaster ride of unexpected turns. From politics, to fidelity, to war, to crime and seeing the explosive interaction between two very opposite individuals there is surely to be some portion of Collaborator which makes you laugh, become angry, and feel empathy towards the characters. A well thought out and executed film with a highly climactic ending that I enjoyed immensely. David Morse's character is executed very well and by the end of the film, I couldn't help but to feel quite sad for the life which he's led. If you have the opportunity, I'd highly recommend it.
