Charlie Wilson's War

Rating = A-

I liked this movie a lot more than most of the critics. The acting is fine, the script does a good job of telling the story from the book in under an hour and a half. It is entertaining while clearly indicating a lot of what is wrong with our country's political process and foreign policy. The reviewers who think the film treats a serious subject too lightly must not understand how frivolous (catastrophically so) our politicians motives typically are.
