Living and My "Dream" Man

My Valentines Day movie

I watched 'Body of Lies' as my Valentine Day movie. And I enjoyed it. Not only because it stars Leonardo Di Caprio, one of my favorite cinema artists but the story is so 'spy-sie' and yet relevantly true, vis-a-vis American political conduct in the Middle East. I also liked watching Persian born actress Golshifteh Farahani with Leonardo. There was chemistry between them, considering there were just a few scenes of them together. I also liked the fact that she reminds me of someoneI like very much as a person.

Body of Lies "is a 2008 American spy film based on the novel of the same name by David Ignatius about a CIA operative who goes to Jordan to track a high-ranking terrorist. The film is directed by Ridley Scott, director of American Gangster and Black Hawk Down, written by William Monahan, and stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Russell Crowe, Vince Colosimo, and Iranian actress Golshifteh Farahani. Production took place in Washington D.C. and Morocco".

Somehow targetted to catch the attention of student viewers in the U.S., 'Body of Lies' was "pre-screened on September 30, 2008 at Michigan Technological University, and October 2, 2008 at the Duke University, New York Film Academy, University of Maryland and University of Virginia. It was also pre-screened on October 3rd, at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, at Michigan State University, at the University of Michigan, the University of Kansas, East Carolina University, and the University of Chicago on October 7th, and at Carnegie Mellon University, Cornell University, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, The University at Buffalo, Columbia University, James Madison University, Syracuse University, the University of Colorado, the University of Washington, and Georgia Southern University on October 9th.
