Any of you guys see Syriana?

i just watched it for the 2nd time tonight. it was very well done and while the events and characters in the story are fictional, it accurately depicts the United States foreign policy and the ever so typical Corperate America.

I would think the majority of the subscribers to this forum would be interested in the subject matter....

I'm not entirely certain how accurate the film is. The makers of the film have an obvious bias from the beginning, so only one side of a make believe story will be shown.

I'm not saying I endorse the sort of corruption shown in the film, but like all things I can't just take one side as gospel.

As for the film itself, the acting was very good. I did find the character development and story telling to be a bit poor. There were a LOT of characters and a LOT of information for such a short movie.

your right about character development being slow, just because there was so much going on. the film was fiction though. the 2nd time i watched it i enjoyed it so much more.

Never seen it, but intend to.

Regardless, consider me more of a 'Mad Max' sort of person anyway.
