    Syriana - 11/23



    R | 2 hr 3 mins | Drama, Adaptation, Thriller, Political

    From Hollywood.com

    From the players brokering back-room deals in Washington to the men toiling in the oil fields of the Persian Gulf, a political thriller with multiple storylines that weave together showing the human consequences of the fierce pursuit of wealth and power. As a career CIA operative begins to uncover the disturbing truth about the work he has devoted his life to, an up-and-coming oil broker faces an unimaginable family tragedy and finds redemption in his partnership with an idealistic Gulf prince. A corporate lawyer faces a moral dilemma as he finesses the questionable merger of two powerful U.S. oil companies, while across the globe, a disenfranchised Pakistani teenager falls prey to the recruiting efforts of a charismatic cleric. Each plays their small part in the vast and complex system that powers the industry, unaware of the explosive impact their lives will have upon the world.

    I'd heard so much about how incredible this movie was, so I watched it last night on PPV. I don't like admitting this, but I was just lost. I liked what I could follow, but I have to say that what I could follow was about 30% of the plot. Maybe.

    ETA: It sort of reminded me of that one Robert Redford/Brad Pitt movie ... Spy Game? (Yes, just looked it up, it's Spy Game.) I couldn't follow that one either.
