It begins by swiping a premise and concludes with an attempted robbery of our principles, pretending that today's world is too confusing for us to know whether to cheer for George Bush or to march with Michael Moore.
If Mr. Krause weren't so good at making his psychotic break with reality (or was it?) so steadily, plausibly convincing, the movie would be unwatchable. Instead, it's a disturbing diary of one man's descent.
Asks the piercing question: does the terrorist lurk within us? In actuality, it's a question worth exploring, but not one that this bombastic and silly thriller is prepared to answer in any dramatically sustainable fashion.
