hey I came upon a review for this today and it is, uh...unkind.

A good chunk of your quote got lost there in the html...

Anyway, i can't say that i'm surprised at the tone of that review. Like the article mentions, his TV series 30 Days showed the sort of "documentary" that Spurlock makes: jokey, tongue-in-cheek, sort of self-centered ego-tripping, manipulative & preconceived. But sometimes all that works pretty well, and gels nicely to make a fun TV show... depending on the subject matter. But it doesn't sound like US-Middle East relations post-911 is a good match for Spurlock's style, though~

I'm actually excited to see this.  There are a number of Iraq War / Post 9/11 films that approach the subject with a more *ahem* "newsiness" tone, but I like his work enough to check it out and give it a fair shot. 

That,... and I have some movie ticket passes, haha :)

I heard an interview of Spurlock done by a local morning radio show here and I'm pretty stoked to see it. Too bad I don't have free passes.
