An emotionally wounded reporter (Ewan McGregor) gets himself stationed in Iraq after Sept. 11, and he winds up traveling through the desert with a purported psychic former soldier (George Clooney, in fine form) on a black-ops mission. Clooney’s soldier was part of a new-age squad that tried peaceful means to fight wars—but wasn’t above staring at a goat until its heart stopped. One of the year’s funniest movies, it not only features a hilarious Clooney, but Jeff Bridges as a longhaired military man and shaman, and Kevin Spacey as a jealous fellow psychic soldier. The movie falls safely on the bizarre side and, in that sense, shares similarities with Clooney’s directorial debut, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. Grant Heslov, who worked with Clooney on Good Night, and Good Luck, directs.

Charleston City Paper The Men Who Stare at Goats falls short of Strangelovian laughs On paper, The Men Who Stare at Goats sounds like a winner. As Bill Django, Jeff Bridges revisits his The Big Lebowski Dude persona to play a love-bead draped, bearded, uber-groovy alt-soldier, who believes psychic communication and dancing can win hearts and minds better than guns and bombs. He embarks on an Army program founded on demobilizing the enemy with telepathic thought waves and the preemptive strike of peace and love. by Felicia Feaster 11/04/2009
