"Blu-Ray Disc, Beyond High Definition."
Big oil means big money. Very big money. And that fact unleashes corruption that stretches from Houston to Washington to the Mideast - and ensnares industrialists, princes, spies, politicos, oilfield laborers and terrorists in a deadly, deceptive web of move and countermove.

George Clooney (Academy Award and Golden Globe winner as Best Supporting Actor), Matt Damon and Jeffrey Wright lead a stellar cast in a lightning-paced, whip-smart thriller written and directed by Traffic Academy Award winner Stephen Gaghan. From its very first scene, Syriana grips your mind and nerves with an intensity that doesn't let go for an instant. What is the price of oil? This "engrossing, insider's tour of the world's hottest spots, grandest schemes and most dangerous men" (Richard Corliss, Time) has a jolting answer.

"...has a lot of big, important things to say about big, important things...  Entertainment Weekly
"...densely packed with detail and convincingly told...  Premiere
"...delivered with breathtaking cinematic brilliance...  Uncut

Editor's Note
Stephen Gaghan, who won an Oscar for best screenplay for TRAFFIC, makes his directorial debut with SYRIANA, an espionage thriller set in the Middle East. George Clooney stars as Bob Barnes, a longtime CIA agent preparing to slow down his life and spend more time with his teenage son (Max Minghella). But his last secret mission, getting rid of Prince Nasir (Alexander Siddig), turns out to be more complicated than he imagined, placing him in the middle of a dangerous conspiracy involving government corruption, oil, and international terrorism. Matt Damon, who starred with Clooney in OCEAN'S ELEVEN and OCEAN'S TWELVE (and made a cameo in Clooney's CONFESSIONS OF A DANGEROUS MIND, which was also about spies and conspiracies), plays Bryan Woodman, an energy executive whose ethics become vulnerable after the horrific loss of one of his sons. Meanwhile, in Washington, D.C., lawyers Bennett Holiday (Jeffrey Wright) and Dean Whiting (Christopher Plummer) also must choose between the government's special interests and what's best for the world (as well as their own special interests). Gaghan gives SYRIANA a documentary-like feel, using handheld cameras and shooting on location, adding to the believability of the complex plot. To heighten the realism, Clooney learned to speak Arabic and even put on 30 pounds for the role. A fast-paced, heart-pounding, relentless film, SYRIANA was inspired by the true story of former CIA agent Robert Baer, told in his book SEE NO EVIL: THE TRUE STORY OF A GROUND SOLDIER IN THE CIA'S WAR ON TERRORISM.

Professional Reviews

Entertainment Weekly
"SYRIANA has a lot of big, important things to say about big, important things, and its says them with a sense of urgency." 12/02/2005 p.56-57

Rolling Stone
4 stars out of 4 -- "[T]his fighting-mad film isn't just hot, its' incendiary. And no one gets off the hook. You see it with the exhilarating feeling that a movie can make a difference." 12/01/2005 p.136

Premiere
3 stars out of 4 -- "[D]ensely packed with detail and convincingly told." 12/01/2005 p.56

New York Times
"[A] movie that demands and rewards close attention....[O]ne of the best geopolitical thrillers in a very long time." 11/23/2005 p.E1

Uncut
5 stars out of 5 -- "[D]elivered with breathtaking cinematic brilliance....[Clooney], all hang-dog stares and brow-beaten demeanour, gives the performance of his career." 04/01/2006 p.132

Sight and Sound
"Outwardly, the picture projects an impression of fragmentation and instability to reflect the turmoil of the world it is investigating." 04/01/2006 p.70

Total Film
4 stars out of 5 -- "SYRIANA is brain-achingly complex yet still deeply, deeply human." 08/01/2006 p.102

Ultimate DVD
4 stars out of 5 -- "It's a Hollywood thriller with a moral conscience, and one that might just inspire a pang of guilt next time you're at the petrol pump." 08/01/2006 p.82

Chicago Sun-Times 10 of 10
The movie has a lot of important roles, and uses recognizable actors to help us keep everything straight. Even then, the studio e-mailed critics a helpful guide to the characters. I didn't look at it. Didn't want to. I liked the way I experienced the film: I couldn't explain the story, but I never felt lost in it. I understood who, what, when, where and why, but not how they connected. That was how I wanted to relate to it. It created sympathy for individual characters in their specific situations without dictating what I was supposed to think about the big picture. - Roger Ebert

Variety 9 of 10
Those complaining that Hollywood never turns out films of topical or political substance are likely to embrace "Syriana," a weighty and deeply intriguing look at the many-tentacled beast that is the international oil industry. Wide-ranging and restlessly probing, Stephen Gaghan's second directorial effort uses the same mosaic storytelling technique as in his Oscar-winning screenplay for "Traffic" to create a revealing portrait of diverse forces contributing to global tension, particularly concerning the Middle East. Terse, understated and sometimes confusing, this is the rare film that could actually benefit from being significantly longer. - Todd McCarthy
