Saturday was pretty much my day off from everything. A day of rest and relaxation. Time to think and plan for the week ahead. I also watched a movie called Body of Lies, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Russel Crowe. I don’t want to ruin the movie for anyone so I’ll just describe the plot in a generic format.
The movie is a spy drama. The primary setting is in the Middle-Eastern country of Jordan. DiCaprio works under Crowe who are both in the CIA to capture a terrorist mastermind. They form an alliance with the Chief of Jordanian Intelligence. DiCaprio is basically used as a pawn by the two organizations who don’t seem to trust each other. He finds himself in a struggle to decide where his allegiance lies and debates which organization can truly assist in the success of the operation. The movies was “okay”. If you enjoyed watching the movie Vantage Point, you’ll probably enjoy this movie as well. I really liked Vantage Point, primarily because of the flashback element that was used to progress the plot.
