Syriana, starring George Clooney, may be a challenging movie to watch, but is a rewarding one as well. It is also a story of terrorism and oil politics that needs to be told and seen. Stephen Caghan, Oscar winning screenplay writer for Traffic, is at the helm. The screenplay is complicated and it took me a while to know what the heck was happening, but after that it was a stimulating watch.
The other movie that deserves to be seen is Good Night, and Good Luck. Clooney directed this movie and starred in a supporting role as well. My notes are here.
