The Men Who Stare at Goats

The Men Who Stare at Goats

No goats. No glory.
  • Guess who got the goat.

Allegedly based on some truths, this film takes a look at a secret US army unit that was trained to use psychic powers for military purposes. A journalist investigating the story tries to cover the Iraqi invasion, but is restricted to Kuwait until he accidently hooks up with a star from the secret military program, who takes him under his wing and into Iraq on a covert operation. Reviews have been mixed.
