Catching up

Right. Last week was Syriana. The movie was very informative and descriptive of the current state of the Middle East. (Of course, a slanted version, but what other kind is there?) And, much like the subject matter, the movie's flow was very non-linear, disjointed, and at times schizophrenic. It was good, on the whole, but a little tricky to follow from time to time. Worth seeing, yes, just know what you're getting into.

OH. And. There's a very vivid torture scene, that I literally couldn't watch. Just FYI. It's not lengthy, but, yeah.

I don't know when I started liking George Clooney, but I think it was when he started doing good roles for a change. And Matt Damon fits in that category as well.

Oh, and yes, Alexander Siddig was pretty damn keen in it. Very interesting part.

Review of the trailers when I find the scrap of paper listing them. Le sigh.
