BODY OF LIES (Theatrical Release USA 2008)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.8|5.0 Starsìììì

Body of Lies—
riveting, inspiring, fully developed, WOW entertainment—takes its audience to a place where few can go without a movie to carry them there. Another Director Ridley Scott masterpiece that capably capitalizes on the acting skills of Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe in its portrayal of Middle East politics. BRAVO for a terrific film.
