War is hell… but peace is boring.
Set just before the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, Sgt. Ray Elwood is an American soldier stationed at a German army camp. A soldier because a judge gave him a choice between the army and jail, Ray spends much of his free time cooking cocaine for the MPs. When a soldier dies and a toxicology screen shows an alarming level of illegal narcotics, someone is sent in to investigate.
This is the scathing satire Australian Director Gregor Jordan made between Two Hands and Ned Kelly. Considered too politically sensitive after 9/11 and the Iraq War, Jordan's audacious and provocative take on military life was left to simmer… until now!
- “Buffalo Soldiers is like MAS*H for the Reagan/Bush era generation that never knew a war like Vietnam. Both films offer a slap in the face to the establishment and display irreverent, savage satire.” – KPBS.org
- “May ultimately be a tad too calculated to truly shock, but manages to navigate between bad taste and Sgt. Bilko with skill and infectious glee.” – Portland Mercury
- “..a dark, entertaining and thought-provoking film that could be recommended to pacifists and militarists alike.” – Draxblog Movie Reviews
