The Men Who Stare at Goats (2009)

KomedieOorlog

Als journalist Bob Wilton ex-militair Lyn Cassady ontmoet, weet hij binnen een paar minuten dat hij eindelijk weer eens een heel bijzonder verhaal in handen heeft. Lyn beweert lid te zijn geweest van een geheim legeronderdeel dat zich al sinds Vietnam probeert te specialiseren in paranormale oorlogsvoering. Te beginnen met het doodstaren van geiten... Terwijl Bob zich vastbijt in dit krankzinnige verhaal wordt Lyn opgeroepen om in Irak op zoek te gaan naar de vermiste grondlegger van de eenheid, Bill Django. Bob besluit om mee op zoek te gaan en ontmoet in de woestijn de tegenhanger van Django: de doorgedraaide psychiater Larry Hooper. Dan is zijn verhaal pas echter compleet. The Men Who Stare At Goats is een op ware feiten gebaseerde bizarre komedie, gebaseerd op het gelijknamige boek van onderzoeksjournalist Jon Ronson.
