Lions for Lambs

We both really enjoyed this movie, which is certainly not the typical Hollywood fare. It was a movie that took some topics (the war in Iraq, the way that media has dealt with it, and the dis-engagement of Americans from politics) and looked at them from several points of view. It was not an action movie or a political thriller, although politics played a big part, and there was action and suspense.

You have to admire Robert Redford for really doing his best to use his craft and money for delving into topics and issues that matter to him. He has made a movie that I recommend parents go to see with their children.

I like a movie, that, at the ending, I say "wow!" or "huh!" It was excellent editing.
