Oh, Canada #11
Released: October 17, 1990
Locations: Ashcroft & Kamloops, British Columbia
Cadence (1990) is a co-production between Canada and USA, that stars Martin Sheen, 11 years after Apocalypse Now (1979), his son Charlie Sheen, 4 years after Platoon (1986) and Laurence Fishburne, also 11 years after Apocalypse Now (1979).
Here, Martin Sheen also directs his son Charlie and his other son Ramon Estevez, making Cadence (1990) a real family affair. I guess Emilio was too busy.
Charlie Sheen plays Bean, an Army soldier sent to the stockade after a drunken altercation with an MP, shortly after the death of his father.
Martin Sheen plays the erratic warden to this Army prison.
I found Cadence (1990) quite effective and a pleasant surprise.
