Three Kings (US, 1999)

Fascinating watching this Iraq war satire (the 1st – recent – one obviously) as it’s (obviously) as relevant as ever. Good, also, to see Clooney’s leftish political credentials, reinforced by two stunning movies this year: Syriana & Goodnight and Good Luck. Funny, well shot; well performed. Saïd Taghmaoui‘s Iraqi soldier is particularly chilling; you can understand why he tortures Mark Wahlberg. A must see. (DVD, 3) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120188/
