Did You Know?

Trivia:
The real Valerie Plame Wilson was awed by the physical and emotional authenticity of the performances. It was, she said, as if she was confronting doppelgangers of herself and her husband. She also said: "Joe [(Joseph Wilson] and I were absolutely thrilled with the cast and the crew. I showed my son a photograph that was taken of me and Naomi [Naomi Watts] on set. He looked at it and said, 'Mum, isn't it strange to find you have a twin at 45?'."See more »
Goofs:
Errors in geography: When Joe Wilson leaves the lunch with the Africans after the confrontation with the reporter, he exits the Willard Hotel at 14th and Pennsylvania NW. He gets in a cab and asks to be taken to the Palisades, a neighborhood in Upper NW DC. When he exits the cab he is in front of the Capitol. The cab has taken him 14 blocks in the wrong direction.See more »
Quotes:
[first lines]
Valerie Plame:Jessica McDowell, Gnosos Chemicals.
Tabir Secretary #1:When do you leave for Kuala Lumpur, Miss McDowell?
Valerie Plame:I fly to Taiwan Tuesday, then back to Düsseldorf.

War and Spin ... then the result?, 11 April 2011
Author: Nemesis42 from Australia

War. Media. Spin. Economics.

We must be reminded that the media is a scathing dog, a venomous snarler that can be fighting for you or against you. The witnesses to this battle of info-rage get brainwashed, we get brainwashed, and become the court of public opinion.

While the movie does not address the reasons the war was started, it brilliantly displays how official bullshit can be thrown over us like a comforting shroud, and that shroud can stimulate our anger as well as justify our anger.

Brilliantly performed by Sean Penn and the beautiful Naomi Watts. I am humbled by their talent and dedication. I am humored by the desperate IMDb rants of those whom still think the war was a 'good' thing - I say to you ranters, wake up for your own good :)

Governments lie, don't forget it.
