Very thought provoking
7 January 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The cast were all very good in their roles, Mark Rylance was outstanding. I found him to be very believable and felt great sympathy for him. I think we would find that it was a very realistic portrayal.

The movie was very scary in it's realistic portrayal of the way governments are so frequently misled by so-called 'intelligence' organizations. Good independent advice is ignored if it contradicts what the 'powers that be' want to hear; as we all know in our hearts.

Too much power is vested in the various Heads of State. Bush declares war and Tony Blair and John Howard in their eagerness to be on 'the right side'bulldoze their countries into the mess.

Kelly was crucified for doing the job he was sent to do.

It took a while to get to sleep last night.
