So what is tango? It is something new to me. Tango is new in America. I love it.
Tango is life.
Tango is love. It's hate. Tango is everything.

It's a lot of things together.

I love Duvall as an actor but he should stick to acting. Assassin Tango gets lost in its' subplot, long and mundane sequences about the assassins relationship with an Argentinian tango dancer. It doesn't go anywhere and is seriously in need of editing. The main story, about a hit on an ex-general responsible for too many desaparacidos is better but pretty chopped up so the tension is lost. Duvall seemed to suffer from the Woody Allen syndrome, trying to reclaim his youth.
