If you're an American you will either hate it, or reflect on it
The Seventh movie direction of Bob Redford, Lions for Lambs is a movie about conscience and the effects of politics and the government in society, it also touches several aspects of the American society, such as student issues, the manipulation of media for political propaganda ends.
It also invites the viewer to reflect on very important ethical and moral issues of modern society.
