Trivia

A very distinctive ornamental mask carving can be seen on the kitchen door frame next to 'Joe Wilson' as he leans against it during an argument with 'Valerie Plame'. It is visible immediately after Plame's "Where does all this get us?" line. This is a Barong mask. The Barong is a Balinese mythological hero, the king of spirits, fighting the eternal battle against evil. This mask can be seen again as Wilson watches the TV news report of the 'Scooter Libby' conviction. See more »

Fact, fiction and vice versa
4 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An outrageous act that the perpetrators managed to get away with it, in fact this particular perpetrators got away with more than anyone in recent history. Scooter Libby, guilty as hell himself became the protective shield of the Vice President. We all know that, so how is it possible that nothing has been done about it? Joe Wilson and Valerie Plane are the attractive protagonists of this thriller that looks and feels like a work of fiction. They are played by the wonderful Sean Penn and Naomi Watts, although the hand held camera and the digital thing worked against them, She looks as if suffering from some kind of skin ailment. David Andrews is great as Scooter Libby. Horrid. The director, however, should have been the Costa Gavras of "Z" or "State Of Siege" Fair Game doesn't go deep enough. If you don't know about it, you'll be very confused and won't be as outraged as one should be. I followed the outraged as it played on the Cable News networks, in the papers and on line, that's why I wanted more from the film but I'm glad it was made and I hope it tickles the curiosity of the naturally indifferent to awaken a truly patriotic sense of disgust.
