Guantanamo

Always a long-shot for the public's ticket -
a tortured, sub-titled script
never likely to be an academy favourite.

The establishment remake: stripped bare
pasted, slapped on the good & evil billboard.
For those who like a scare, but the good guys win.

In the end no jury requested. Envelopes sealed.
Reels buried deep in the American archive.

Mike Smith (2006)
