Syriana


Finally got round to seeing this; it has been talked about quite a bit in Peak Oil circles, but as I hardly ever get to the cinema these days, it had to wait until it as on special offer from the Virgin Megastore before being watched. Which is fine - I'll watch it again. Quite absorbing portrait of the oil world in its several aspects; a very interesting sub-theme about fatherhood in family relations; but either I missed something or the director missed something; something known as a point - though I suppose still life and portraiture doesn't need a 'point' still I like my narratives to carry that weight.
