'Syriana' sheds light on America's hunger for oil
In the midst of all the rubbish that Hollywood has produced of late is Syriana, a truly great film. Loosely based on Robert Baer's 2002 memoir See No Evil, Syriana packs a dynamic punch of first-rate acting, stellar directing and a plot that will make viewers think.
