Product Description

Product Description

Body of Lies

Set it next to the similar Middle-East intrigue of Syriana, and Body of Lies is easy to follow--in fact, this movie's plot is amazingly straightforward for an espionage picture. Leonardo DiCaprio is the CIA agent on the ground, an Arabic-speaking chameleon who believes in forging personal relationships based on trust and professionalism. Russell Crowe is his supervisor, a meddler who makes up the rules as he goes along and is more than willing to trade long-term benefits for a short-term "win." (One of these characters is surely intended to represent the foreign policy style of the Bush administration in the first decade of the 21st century; take a guess which one.) While working on a case in Jordan, DiCaprio gets a modest flirtation going with a nurse (Golshifteh Farahani), although his most intense relationship is with a Jordanian intelligence chief (great role for Mark Strong) who takes a wary view of the CIA's activities. Ridley Scott directs as though weary of all the fuss, and his merriment in Crowe's breezy sociopath gives the movie a rather strange aftertaste. It gets the job done, although after it's over you might find yourself craving the head-scratching complications of Syriana. --Robert Horton --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
Russel Crowe, the head of the CIA states: This is a results-oreiented organization. Get me results". to Di Caprio the rising star of the Middle East campaign against terrorism. Is he an Arab? This is hinted, but we never really know. Certainly, he understands the culure and respects it until he betrays his allies. DiCapprio's clearly the hero. He gets results. Unfortunately, the plot is muddied as we fly from CIA headquarter in Langley, Iraq, Iran, Amsterdam, the desert, Amman in Jordan and back again and again. I had to watch it twice to follow the globtrotting plot line. Crowe is superb and so it DiCapprio in their roles, but they lack the relaitonship shown in The Spy Games despite the similarities of Dicapprio's growing attraction to the nurse from Syria. Oh yes, the movie went there, too.

Smacking the CIA seems to be popular in movies and for all I know they deserve it, but this war on terrorism is getting a little tiresome. Only the head of the Jordanian Police? has integrity, and while DiCaprio betrays him ... The Jordanian still wins the day. He is truly the star of the movie. He has integrity, skill, initiative, loyalty and is even more devious than DiCapprio. Yes, Crowe praises our rising star of the Near East for his deviousness. In the end, Crowe remains true to the Spy code. If you've seen Spy Game you will know Ford outlined that clearly to Brad Pitt.

It's worth renting for the actor's performances and for seeing how many places a movie can portray in two hours, but the plot is convoluted and the relationships don't make you like or dislike the stars ... so why should the audience care. If your're going to buy a DVD, buy The Spy Game. It's clear, conclse and has a great storyline as well as great actors. Body of Lies (Widescreen)

A good script, lots of action, solid direction and strong acting make for an entertaining and relevant movie. One suspects, that as in most employment, the boss is safe, a long way from the action, as is the case in this film.

This movie was well acted - totally believable - which makes it pretty unreal to a normal like me. Hard to believe that this goes on - lives are whatever - which makes people like me a whatever.....

complicated characterisation and narrative direction obviate the usual excess of "action" and make the moral and developmental thrust more equivocal, less certain in entertaining ways.
