LORD OF WAR
9PM, 9GO! ★★ ★
Nicolas Cage is the Third World’s leading freelance gunrunner in this fl ick from writer- director Andrew Niccol ( Gattaca). Hard to tell if it’s supposed to be an oddball black comedy or outspoken political satire. Doesn’t quite cut it on either level, but it’s impeccably scripted and never dull. Co- stars Jared Leto.
