There is nothing better than seeing this movie if you are looking for a brief (and entertaining) course on:

- The actual function and nature of terrorism in the Middle East
- The reasons for US meddling in the region
- The role of the oil industry, both on its own and as a US government partner
- The interconnections among all of these factors

I saw it last night, and loved it. The cast is star-studded, with George Clooney, Christopher Plummer, and others (if you are a trekkie like me, there is also the familiar face of Alexander "Dr Bashir" Siddig). The story is a fictionalized version of the facts revealed or uncovered by former CIA agent Robert Baer in his books.

can also read 'the prize'
offers interesting insight into how world events play out and who knows about what first (especially shell and nigeria)
