The Riverman

1983:  THE RIVERMAN tells the powerful and captivating story of the one man’s obsession to exploit a uranium-rich stretch of African land to bolster company profits, opposed to another’s genuine concern for ecological conservation. Caught in the middle of this struggle is a beautiful woman who is torn apart by her feelings for the one and her moral obligation to the other. This invariably leads to a fascinating love triangle and an explosive final confrontation!   

Interesting facts:

Michael Parks

The official "Kill Bill" websites claim that he is "frequently cited by longtime fan Quentin Tarantino as the world's greatest living actor."

He played Earl McGraw, the police officer with bad puns, in Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003) and then played Esteban Vinaio, the 80-year-old, smooth Mexican pimp who once was Bill's mentor in Kill Bill: Vol. 2 (2004). This makes him only one of two actors to appear in both Kill Bill films playing different characters. The other person to play separate roles in both films is Chia-Hui Liu.
