As if I need another reason to distrust and fear my own country
In a fit of boredom, I decided to see Syriana with a friend this evening. I really do enjoy movies that make me think. This was certainly one of them. It runs in the same vein as Traffic (Another movie written by Stephen Gaghan). This movie follows about 40 different characters through about 5 differnt plot lines. Following the trail of American influence into the global oil market and some of the very cynical things that we do to make sure that we have all the oil that we need. Syriana may have made me think too much. As you all know, I keep my tinfoil hat in my back pocket and I have a few spares in my glove box, desk drawer and one or two hidden about the house. Syriana can only make this worse. I know that the whole story is a fabrication, but I also know that it can't be too far from the truth.
