The Men Who Stare At Goats


I enjoyed this movie. Here’s Roger Ebert’s take on it. One of the things Roger says in the review is that “Cassady attempts to deal it (hostility) with using paranormal techniques. He explains his theory of Jedi Warriordom to Wilton, who has apparently never seen “Star Wars” episodes I, II and III. Little joke.” I think it is even funnier because Wilton is played by Ewan McGregor; the same guy who played Obi-Wan Kenobi. Oh, MK-Ultra and Angela Lansbury are both referenced in the film. Was that an intentional nod to The Manchurian Candidate?
