  • Turtles Can Fly (the movie)

    Just saw this today. Good movie.

    And it is good for all sides of the debate about Iraq from a humanistic/artistic view.

    It shows why we really needed to go into Iraq. It shows why we really need to succeed in Iraq. And it shows why we should criticize the administration and their handling of the invasion and occupation of that country. And it shows why it is going to be very hard to actually succeed there.

    This is an artistic view point from an Iranian director. So some here may dismiss this piece out of hand. You shouldn't. I detected no real political overtones.

    But be warned, it is not a happy movie.
