Syriana – 2005 – Stephen Gaghan

sy.jpgA complex and compelling tale of corruption and retribution. Works best in its portrayal of outsiders; George Clooney as a cast-out from the CIA machine, Jeffrey Wright as the black virtuous lawyer, the Saudi reformist Prince and the young Pakistani terrorist,  all connected and complicit in a nefaorius web. One to watch. JJ
