Demanding, even confusing at times, this is required viewing that requires your full attention.

Un tenso e interesante thriller político, si bien abrumador y por momentos confuso, sobre tema actual, con destacada labor de George Clooney.

There is a weird absence of both dramatic heat and political light here.

[Syriana] fulfils all the key criteria of a decent political thriller - it'll make you angry, it'll make you think and it'll scare the hell out of you.

Gaghan piles one storyline on another but is only interested in suggesting where they trend, working like a (cynical) editorialist who has made up a few examples to support his views.

Adept at delivering macro and micro perspectives without moralism or conviction.

Syriana is a terrific movie, sprawling in its story, chilling in its implications, but you may need a whiteboard and marker to follow it.

This is a film that warrants your attention. A potent and intelligent film that informs as well as entertains, Syriana is the starting point for an intense and lengthy conversation.

Longe de representar uma experiência emocional, o longa exige dedicação ao espectador - e se você estiver disposto(a) a mergulhar na discussão será fartamente recompensado(a).

Stephen Gaghan signe une %u0153uvre nécessaire qui arrive au bon moment pour agrémenter un débat sans que cela ne paraisse trop opportuniste.

Oil, war, global capitalism -- it's just not simple. It is by nature hard to understand. This picture gives you a sense of that complexity while it compels. Nice work.

A bleak and powerful movie, made all the more sobering by how much of it isn't fiction.

Syriana impresses, not because it is very moving, which it isn't, or because it is crystal clear, which it also isn't, but because it is so large, so encompassing, so seemingly privy to inside stuff.

If you want a movie that answers all your questions, try "Revenge of the Sith." If you want a movie that questions all your answers, try this one.

Syriana demands patience to see how the pieces come together in a fascinating mosaic of politics, capitalism, and corruption.
