The Men Who Stare at Goats (2009)

As crazy as this tale is, and the fact that it is true, doesn't quite lift if from being a relatively meaningless story.

A down-and-out reporter stumbles upon a bizarre tale as he tries to write about the Iraq War. The American government sponsored a military project in the 1980's whose objective was to teach soldiers how to channel psychic power as a weapon. The reporter follows one of the most adept of these trainees a couple decades later as he practices the weird techniques in Iraq.

The acting is great. The writing is decent. The cinematography is adequate. The story just lacks importance and it leaves you the same way a bizarre story in the newspaper leaves you.
