>We’ve been watching a lot of films recently.
Turtles Can Fly
This was the first film made in Iraq after the fall of Saddam Hussein. Brutal. Twisted.
Frontline: Is Wal-Mart Good for America? (2004)
While not as engaging as The High Cost of Low Prices, it was worth watching.
Uncovered: The War on Iraq (2004)
This documentary analyzes the progression from 9/11 to Iraq. The spoken reasons–WMDs, links to 9/11, ties to al Qaeda, imminent threat to the U.S.–all appear to be untrue. I was surprised it didn’t reference the Downing Street Memo (Link 1, Link 2, Link 3).
We’ve owned this movie for almost a year, but I hadn’t watched it until this past week. Powerful.
Then I needed a break from this cruel world. Jim Gaffigan delivered the goods. Hilarious!
