Loosely adapted from a nonfiction book by Jon Ronson, Grant Heslov's directorial debut The Men Who Stare at Goats begins as heartbroken reporter Bob Wilton (Ewan McGregor) heads off to imbed himself with troops as the Iraq War starts, but Wilton can't get himself into the country until he chances upon Lyn Cassady (George Clooney). It turns out Lyn spent decades as part of the New Earth Army -- a platoon of men, led by Bill Django (Jeff Bridges), who lived a new-age lifestyle in an attempt to cultivate extrasensory perception that would allow the U.S. army to win wars nonviolently. Bill now has a secret mission in Iraq, and allows Bob to come along. As the duo gets into a series of misadventures, Lyn shares with Bob the colorful history of the New Earth Army and chronicles the nefarious machinations of Larry Hooper (Kevin Spacey), whose jealousy of Lyn's remarkable skill brought an end to the group.

I think the notion of using parapsychology to undercut the military culture is brilliant. George Clooney, Kevin Spacey and, especially Jeff Bridges (in his "Dude" persona) nail their performances. The plot and movements may have been a little subtle for the general movie theatre audience, but those who enjoy intellectual stimulation, along with their entertainment, will find this movie most satisfying. "Now, more than ever, we need the Jedi."

I went to see this when it was in the theater. All I can say is that several people walk out and I only sat through it to finish my popcorn.
