Body of Lies

As always, director Ridley Scott (Alien, Gladiator, Black Hawk Down) has crafted a highly polished piece of film work with this contemporary Mideast spy thriller. The dynamic of the script is compelling, casting Leonardo DiCaprio as an idealized CIA field agent trying to flush out a terrorist leader in Jordan and Russell Crowe as a careless Washington bureaucrat moving his overseas agents around like pawns. Credulity is stretched (does Crowe have nobody else working for him?), but Scott keeps tensions high. 125 minutes R.
