THE MEN WHO STARE AT GOATS
I couldn't tell if this movie was attempting to recreate the atmosphere of Hollywood "counter-culture"-based semi-comedy films of the late Sixties through early Eighties, or if it was poking fun at the military, praising the military, or giving us the message that we as humans tend not to live up to our full potential, or what... Maybe a combination of all the above? At the beginning of the movie there is a little statement onscreen, something to the effect of "More of the following is true than you may realize." I am not sure how much of the things portrayed in the movie could possibly be true, but some of it supposedly did happen.
Although "Goats" seemed a bit slow at times, I enjoyed it. It seemed very much like a Coen Brothers movie, but I don't think it was done by the Coens.
If you like mellow movies that kind of amble along, provide some thought fodder, give you some good laughs, AND if you approach this film with an open mind (suspend your disbelief), I think you will like it as much as I did.
