Can Morgan Spurlock find Osama? Come and find out at Espoo Ciné on Saturday at 21.00!
The hilarious fast-food documentary Super Size Me was screened at Espoo
Ciné four years ago with the director Morgan Spurlock also visiting the
festival. The film examined in detail the immense health risks posed by
the so-called junk food. In his latest documentary, Spurlock is
examining an evil of another kind: he is tracing the world's most
wanted man, Osama bin Laden. But how does Spurlock think he can find
someone even the CIA has not succeeded in tracking down despite many
years on his trail?
In his uproarious new film, Spurlock travels
across and all over the Middle East, not so much intending to actually
track down bin Laden but demonstrating how George W. Bush's view of the
world with its notorious idea of an "axis of evil" does not quite hold
water. The director meets ordinary families and listens to their
everyday troubles in Afghanistan, Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia,
Pakistan, Morocco and Ramallah – with fully armed, raving mad jihadists
nowhere to be seen.
