Stephen Gaghan’s new movie Syriana opens around the country next week. It might draw in moviegoers with the star power of George Clooney and Matt Damon, but what will stick is its provocative and disturbing plot — an intricate tale about the oil industry in the Middle East. Based in part on the memoir of a longtime CIA operative in the Middle East, it features a CIA political assassination and Islamic terrorism. Gaghan won an Academy Award for Traffic in 2001. He joined Kurt to talk about the new film.
