While Old Zach is planning on watching Walk the Line shortly and I'm intrigued by its similarity of genre to Ray, I'm starting to get very interested in Syriana, the George Clooney movie starring Matt Damon and based roughly on the book by Robert Baer, an ex-CIA field officer in its Directorate of Operations division from 1976 to 1997. He is the author of See No Evil: The True Story of a Ground Soldier in the CIA's War on Terrorism.

To read an interview on FrontpageMag with Robert Baer, go here. Baer on Clinton: "I think Clinton was naive. He didn't have the slightest idea there was a dangerous world out there. A baby-boomer, he was more concerned about Nasdaq and the way he felt about things than he was about national security."

Here is the trailer for the movie, which looks simply fascinating. Probably a lot of propaganda, but hopefully an exciting movie.

I need to see Good Luck and Good Night as well, another film directed by Clooney.

And of course, Narnia is on the horizon as well. Looks like ther might finally be some interesting movies out.
