Body Of Lies

My brother describes this movie as an amalgam of Munich and Suryavanshi. My wife describes it as Body of Shit.

Body of Lies is a good movie, in the same vien as Syriana, though more glamourous and less credible than Syriana. Russell Crowe and Leonardo di Caprio do a good job. The best job's been done by Mark Strong as Hani Salaam, the virtual monarch of the realm of Jordanian espionage. Plot is convoluted but mostly comprehensible. A little unnecessary violence.

Personally I loved the way Arabic is shoved in the viewers' face at every oppourtunity as I am trying to learn Arabic.

All in all worth a watch. Go forth and deceive.
