Year of the Gun (1991) is John Frankenheimer's film about the death of Italian prime minister Aldo Moro, who was abducted and murdered by a people's revolutionary movement known as the Red Brigades. Andrew McCarthy plays an apolitical American reporter who is dead broke at the center of the bolshie bull’s-eye—he's working on a novel, and its plot just coincidentally resembles the Red Brigade's nasty plans. No one believes that it's just a bad case of happenstance, and this pickle gets Andrew on the radar of not only the police and the reds themselves, but of brainy, ballsy Sharon Stone, a photojournalist with just about everything figured out. Valeria Golino is Andy's white-hot lover, but she, too, comes with an underlayer you can't see even when she's baring both hooter and scooter for the cameras. Sharon shows a wee bit of each herself, though that should hardly come as much of a surprise compared to the surprise twist Year of the Gun has in store when it gets close to revealing its own hind end.
