The doctor, as Danny indicates, will ultimately have a lot to answer for. Kaffee should either thank him for protecting his country and his way of life or take up a gun and do it himself.
A fence line shooting would be a big deal, since Guantanamo Bay is located on Cuban soil. Cruise himself has been nominated three times, but has never won. Back in court, evidence comes up which questions whether Kendrick ordered Dawson and Downey to carry out the Code Red, something the defense has always taken for granted.
Seeing Kaffee as nothing more than a coward for making the deal and trying to avoid fighting the case, Dawson refuses to salute him when he leaves the room. Would he want them to spend time in jail and be dishonored?
Synopsis Late one evening, at the U. Downey, a simple-minded young man and an archetypal village idiot, is guided solely by his devotion to being a Marine and his dedication to his superior, namely Dawson. Sutherland praised Cruise for inspiring him with his acting.
A Broadway producer is considering bringing the play back to the stage in New York. Brown later got a call from Alan Horn at Castle Rock Entertainment, who was anxious to make the film.
In his defense, a Humvee is over a foot wider than the average car. Unfortunately, given the strengths Danny has already exhibited in court, this is almost anticlimactic and would carry greater significance if it came from the judge, or perhaps even Jessep, though the chosen, unyielding temperament for Jessep seems correct.
When Kaffee puts this to the defendants, however, Dawson regards such a move as cowardly and dishonorable and rejects it, knowing that he and Downey will be dishonorably discharged from the corps.
Kaffee is cowed into complying and Jessup happily agrees. Kaffee meets with the defendants and finds that they are of the strictest type of Marines - those that serve in a "forward area" on the line between their country and an enemy country and are required to take their duties very seriously.
Kaffee simply expresses satisfaction that Jessup will go to jail for the death of Santiago. Jessup angrily rejects this stating that as front-line troops his men have to obey orders at all times without question.
For all of his flourish, Cruise, as is typical, was ignored by the Oscars. Santiago was clearly not up to the standards and yet was not subjected to a Code Red until the evening of his death. Reiner says he just looked like a marine.
Reiner says he related to Kaffee because of his own famous father. Jessup also tells them that he arranged for Santiago to leave the base for his own safety once his denunciation of Dawson became known but that he died before he could leave. According to Reiner, each time was just as intense as the one on screen.
One of the strongest images a director can produce is the look of respect from an adversary. At the grand jury hearing, he enters a plea of not guilty for his defendants.
Code Red is such a key phrase, every main character says it at least once. Sorkin says he knew he had a great story when he noticed one thing about the real-life case.
Why is Danny so unambitious? Ross makes no secret of the fact that he has been given a lot of leeway by his superiors to close the case since Colonel Jessup is expected to take up an important post with the National Security Council NSC and this could be put in jeopardy due to the Santiago affair.
Reiner, though, is unwilling to show either Pops or a young Danny in flashback.
