Afghan Luke

In brief:
Nick Stahl plays a reporter on the Afghan war who finds out more than he is allowed to report.

Excellent cast, excellent story -- and it is not all wrapped up at the end. "Your current enemy is just your future ally" is a quote lifted from B.H. Liddell Hart in Thoughts on War: "For the enemy of to-day is the customer of tomorrow, and often the ally of the future."

Afghanistan is not a neat war. This is not a neat movie. Lots of loose ends left to ponder after the film is over.
