indieWire "The Dancer Upstairs," John Malkovich's Intense Debut: "John Malkovich's intensely cinematic directorial debut 'The Dancer Upstairs' weaves a compelling variation on one of the most violent pre-Al Qaeda terrorist movements: the story of Peru's post-Maoist terrorists, Sendero Luminoso (The Shining Path), and the capture of Abimael Guzman, their messianic leader, in the 1980s." I have not read Nicholas Shakespeare's novel that provides the story for this picture, but I did meet him when he did a journalistic piece back in the mid-1980s about searching for Guzman. I suspect that this picture is more about a personal drama than tracking down Chairman Gonzalo.
