Missing, from Costa-Gavras

Miss. USA, 1982 (118 minutes). Director: Costa Gavras. Actors: Jack Lemmon, Sissy Spacek.

Political and militant cinema bore the recurring name of Costa-Gavras in the 1970s with films such as Z, State of Siege and Special Section. The filmmaker never gave up his commitment and began the 1980s with another violent political denunciation, a haunting portrait of the first days of Pinochet's coup in Chile. “Disappeared” is a masterpiece full of formal sobriety and inner unrest: a wealthy and conservative American travels to Chile to investigate the disappearance of his son. Also to shake your conscience.
