From The Man, Who Never Lived

Movie Review: "Body Of Lies" (2008)

The book by David Ignatius released in 2007 and super-fast, pre-release option through Warner Bros. Pictures, brings Academy-Award-nominated Director Ridley Scott into action-thriller modes, set in the Iraq-conflicted-aftermath of the U.S. invasion of 2003, sending main character Roger Ferris, portrayed with doubt in his eyes, yet "Blood Diamond" action-approved Leonardo DiCarpio, who gets send as an "Army-Of-One" CIA operative by his constant-whistle-blowing supervisor, performed by Russell Crowe unusually cruel-playing, constant telecommunications-incorporation character of Ed Hoffman, calling Ferris in Middle Eastern region, when second unit cinematographer Alexander Witt fails to put some immersive image system into no more tiresome handheld-action-shots, when actor Mark Strong as Middle Eastern Intelligence high-profiler Hani seems to be the only character to convince in this professionally-executed, but unfocused directorial vision by Ridley Scott on a contemporary "war-on-terror" theme, favoring the heart-breaking sub-story as excuse of the main character's incapability to love a already-forgiving oriental nurse woman Aisha to down-beat endings of life being a bitch.

unrealistic stuff unfortunately

The movies was well made. I enjoyed it very much at the beginning then it starts to be dull. as an Arab who watched this movie I have some notes that I want to clarify, first it was stupid when leo said to the nurse are you Iranian and she didn't even talk enough Arabic so he could notice and even leo doesn't know that much of Arabic in the film. 2 there is no way to date an Arab girl as easy as shown in the film Arabs are so strict on their daughters especially when it comes to deal with men outside the family how about foreign man . 3 Arabs community = male-dominant community so how come at Aisha's house there is no men at all if there would be a chance to still see this American men will get involve for sure. 4 women dont sit in coffee shops even with girlfriends in front of men like that local and tiny coffe shops like that considered for men. 5 I don't buy that whole story with leo and Aisha and how in this short while of knowing Aisha he became willing to sacrifice himself for her I don't think that any agent in reality would do that it makes no sense . 6 they are keep saying koskos as a name of a meal but the meal koskos is actually Moroccan not from Jordan. 7 this one is very naive see the scene where leo was about to die the Arabic man said death for the non believer blah blah blah then he says (tashahad ala rouhk) that means say the shahada on yourself its an Islamic thing how u say that at him and he is a non beliver or christian or whatever. I hated these stupid yet important deatiles they should pay more attention after all the movie was very good but this semi ruined it.

Vivid but uneven

Unmemorable because difficult to follow, and I've watched it three and a half times; one of them with the director and others commentating. It gets clearer the more you watch it, like other of Ridley's films. Great attention to detail, which works a lot of the time, but not always. Visually effective. However, it's not an uplifting story, or rewarding to watch, in spite of Golshifteh, as attractive here as she was in Paterson. Another reviewer has pointed out that there was nobody else pleasant or decent enough to root for; they were all nasty in varying ways, with DiCaprio slightly more appealing than Crowe, which isn't saying much.

What's the message ? That war, especially Middle East war, is brutal, cynically treacherous and indifferent to suffering; kill or be killed ? Suicidal, sacrificial, martyr-minded ? Not very entertaining or enlightening. I don't need to know that. I'm sufficiently aware of it already, in any case.
