Trailer Watch: The Men Who Stare At Goats
Coming from Grant Heslov, The Men Who Stare At Goats seems like the excellent military satire we've all been waiting for. Surely, there hasn't been a good one since 1999's Three Kings, and it's no coincidence that both Kings and Goats stare the seemingly always exceptional George Clooney. Heslov has worked with Clooney previously on the screenplay for Good Night, and Good Luck, and now Heslov is getting the chance to direct his first feature film. Featuring an excellent cast (am I the only one wondering where the awesomeness of Kevin Spacey has gone?), and what seems to be an intelligent script from a nonfiction source, this film has a great opportunity to be a sleeper hit later in the year.
