Writer-director Richard Shepard (THE MATADOR) loosely based THE HUNTING PARTY on an article Scott Anderson wrote for Esquire magazine entitled 'What I Did on My Summer Vacation', about five reporters who actually did go after Karadicz, and tried to capture him. Shepard infuses the film with a sly black humour and fills the story with a crazy cast of oddball characters, paying homage to Carol Reed's THE THIRD MAN, which was set in post-war Vienna. The three leads are excellent, especially Gere, who plays Hunt with a knowing grin that often hides what he's really up to. Shot on location in and around Sarajevo, lending the film an eerie reality, THE HUNTING PARTY--which claims at the beginning that 'only the most ridiculous parts of this story are true'--is a fun and fascinating political thriller.
