A long pondered but only lately realized blog about economics, politics, evaluation, econometrics, Ann Arbor, academia, college football and whatever else comes to mind.

We saw this one last week. One of the ads said it is this year's "Bourne" movie, which is very misleading. This movie is actually much slower paced than the Bourne movies and also wants to tell a much more serious story about the tradeoff between small evils and large ones. I think I would have liked it more if I had not gone in expecting a rollicking thrill ride of a movie. The virtues here are the performances by the leads and what seemed to me a remarkably realistic portrayal of life as a terrorist. Marginally recommended.
