Act of Idiocy
In many ways, this week's most significant movie release is the Navy SEALs propaganda piece, Act of Valor since, while utterly dispensible - indeed, inept - as cinema, it crystalizes so many of the myths that surround the conventional narrative of U.S. military action and the war on terror. Needless to say, my review has not met with approval from all quarters.
