DVD: The Men Who Stare at Goats, For retail & rental (Momentum)
Sunday 18 April 2010
Jon Ronson's book about the Pentagon's secret experiments in psychic combat has been turned into a film in the most unsatisfying possible manner.
Starring Ewan McGregor and George Clooney, The Men Who Stare at Goats doesn't have the plot or the laughs to work as a comedy, and yet it's so hazy about what's fictional and what isn't that it doesn't deliver as an indictment of military madness, either. It starts with the caption: "More of this is true than you would believe." Well, fine. But how much?
