The thing that bothered me most was how we, as Americans, have no say in the way this country is run. I am pretty sure that even the Bush supporters would have to check their political choices after seeing this movie. I heard that some walked out of the movie at the premiere. I guess they couldn't take the heat.
I just hope lots of people see it and get a little perspective about what's really going on here and in the Middle East. I know! No Politics Allowed!!
Good movie, but not if you'd like to be in a good mood when you walk out. I turned on the Mermaid song on the Folk the World CD to cheer myself up. And of course it did the trick.
Deirdre, didn't you think George Clooney's performance was a real surprise? I was slightly taken aback to find he could actually act without that "wink, wink, sarcastic" charm he usually uses to, in essesnse, always play himself in his movies. There was absolutely no George Clooney in that character.
