Film: Syriana Click for more info

Political thriller depicting the shady world of the oil business. Mainly focusing on the corruption of those in power (although we do also see a bit about terrorism), Syriana burns quite slowly with things only starting to make sense for me toward the end of the film.

Pretty good performances all round make this a pretty watchable film even if you're not fully clued up on Middle East politics (at least I wasn't and I found it pretty interesting). Worth watching if you want something a bit different from the usual.
