Money spent on war outsourcing

This week-end I watched "Grace is gone", a movie that touched my heart. I have to admit that I cried and felt a lot of anger watching this under-rated beautiful film about a father who does not know how to explain to his young daughters that their mother was killed serving in Iraq.

It was a beautiful film but received little acclaim in spite of John Cusack's stellar performance. Probably this film was too subtle for a typical anti-war movie, there are no flashback to a heroic death in Iraq just a great sense of loss.

In "War Inc" the new John Cusack's movie, there are no such subtleties, the message is apparently clear enough to invite Bill O'Reilly's spin zone to call the film nothing but propaganda, interesting words from the King of slime at Fox network.

War Inc is available on DVD if you can't wait to see it in Cleveland.

I think they rolled up the DVD release date to October. It was originally scheduled for July.
There is a rolling billboard on JohnCusack's myspace, listing locations where the film is showing.
I saw War, Inc. last weekend and thought it was very good.

I am waiting to see it, I like John Cusack and it is nice to know that the movie is good.

I know that it is not a popular subject but sometimes fiction is the best medium to describe reality.

Thank you for visiting and adding your comment.
