Buffalo Soldiers is a satirical film that was released to theaters in 2001. The film was directed by Gregor Jordan and based on a novel of the same name by Robert O'Connor. Buffalo Soldiers starts with Joaquin Phoenix's character, Ray Elwood, who is a specialist in the United States Army, and is stationed in Germany. Unfortunately he finds himself bored with life because there's no conflict or tension going on so he decides on making drugs underground for the local police. To make things easier on himself, he uses his commanding officer Colonel Berman, played by Ed Harris, to help him with his job, without the slightest idea of what illegal activity Elwood is doing. It's not all fun and games however, because at one point a new First Sergeant named Robert E. Lee, who is played by Scott Glenn, gets introduced to the army and easily figures out that Elwood and his crew are up to no good. To make matters worse, some of his crew end up accidentally killing other soldiers due to the heavy heroin usage. The movie Buffalo Soldiers was produced by both Rainer Grupe and Ariane Moody. Robert O'Connor served as a film writer.
