This weekend we saw "The International" starring Clive Owen and Naomi Watts. It was an interesting and pretty sobering concept - a large and powerful bank sells small arms to revolutionaries in civil conflicts and profits (in many ways) off of the debts that are accrued. I hope that I explained that correctly! I had a difficult time paying attention the entire time as it was a pretty slow moving film. I kept thinking it was ending and then it would keep going. Matt really enjoyed it, but I thought it could have been shorter and the characters could have been developed more fully. They seemed pretty one-dimensional. I would wait to see it when it comes out on DVD because it seems like a combination of other movies I have already seen.
