Rajiv Chandrasekaran’s Imperial Life in the Emerald City was a prizewinning look at where L. Paul Bremer and his cronies got it wrong in trying to rebuild a post-war Iraq. On its way to the big screen, the nonfiction study would appear to have been transformed into an all-action thriller that reunites Matt Damon with his Bourne Supremacy director Paul Greengrass. Fans of subterfuge reeking with testosterone should be delighted by the sheer number of edits in these two minutes. Matt Damon appears to have left his brain in the makeup room in his performance of a WMD sniffer who goes rogue, but at least we have Brendan Gleeson to add a touch of oil to the proceedings.
