Syriana seems like it was ripped right off the headlines. A raw, nerve rattling and powerfully explosive political thriller that ranks with the best pictures in recent years. George Clooney delivers his most memorable performance yet. Syrian is is a brilliantly riveting movie told in bold and imaginative style.
I have no clue what this movie was about. It was well made, had good acting, good effects, and all that, but it really seemed like it was supposed to have a point and I totally missed it. You might want to get a little background and context before you watch it.
I didn't get it the first time I saw it either. You have to want to understand it. I think thats what makes a great film, making you want to study / understand it. Matt Damon is totally underrated. There, I said it. I don't care who knows.
