Body of Lies

Blah. Dumb movie. I couldn't sympathize with any of the characters. The one bright spot is Golshifteh Farahani as Aisha. She could melt an iceberg with those eyes. Then again, the idea that she would date DiCaprio's dodgy character is pretty far fetched. DiCaprio will only tell her is that he's a "political advisor to the King." nplz. Aisha would be deeply suspicious, and rightly so. Also, women as pretty as Farahani (especially in a traditional society) always have men chasing them so where are her would-be suitors? If DiCaprio had a run-in with some Arab guy over her my willingness to suspend disbelief might have lasted a bit longer.

Oh yeah, the fake Middle Eastern soundtrack is nauseating.

Note to Hollywood. Stop making movies about Arab terrorists. You suck at this.
