Syriana

Syriana PosterSyriana brings to the surface the ugly elements of oil security. It somehow manages to condense big picture, systemic problems with American democracy and business into a rich, gripping (and somewhat difficult to follow) plot.

At the same time, all the leading characters go through their own rounds of challenges, triumphs, deceit and corruption. It’s a bleak story in which greed and injustice wins at the expense of pawns or the desperate.

If you’ve ever doubted that oil rules foreign policy, or that business interests in oil are above the law, see this film. It’s great to see films that cause debate, raise awareness and deal with issues of our time come back into the mainstream. Well done to George Clooney, who’s mission to make film meaningful has been accomplished. Rotten Tomatoes Reviews
