Body of Lies director Ridley Scott has tried to cover a subject which others might have dropped with fear of turning into a really big movie but Ridley covers it very well. Movie is based on the struggle of a CIA agent to uncover a terrorist group which is blasting civilian places in west. In this struggle, he discovers the truth about the lies – lies are base for every new project.
Acting of both actors Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe is appreciable but nowhere I found this movie to be a good choice for Oscar nominations. First movie is quite slow and secondly, as one user mentions in comments, it is forgettable. It leaves many topics open and at the same time, blames a specific religion for terrorism which doesn’t look fair. Nah it doesn’t belong to Oscar genre.
