Did Morgan Spurlock Find bin Laden? /Film Knows!

We pretty thoroughly debunked this last month, but, seeing as we haven’t see the finished film, there was no absolute way of knowing. (Maybe he found Osama since our article?)

Although it’s a just rumor, /Film has a spy report the answer. Since this gives away the end of the doc, which will play later this month at Sundance, scroll down for that answer.

OK, you’ve been warned:

The main premise of the film is that Spurlock’s girlfriend is going to give birth to Spurlock’s baby in 8-weeks, and the filmmaker supposedly wants to find Osama and make the world safer for his kid (I’m sure some of this is tounge in cheek). My source tells me that Spurlock could have gotten really close to Bin Laden, but “…it’s hard to say.” In the documentary, Spurlock travels to the middle east and meets with “a lot of people with whom Osama grew up with.”

“At the end of the movie, he is about to go into the Tribal Area of Pakistan, where a huge sign says no outsiders allowed, you will be shot. He thinks about his kid and decided to turn around.”

The spy goes on to say, “It’s a funny movie, and it shows crazy footage. He basically goes in the middle east and finds out why everyone hates America. It does offer a interesting look in the middle east, a different view that Americans haven’t seen before. But no Bin Laden.””

TV, DVD, BLU-RAY & THEATER REVIEWS

  • Bad Words

    Looming over “Bad Words” is the potential it could have had, as is, were it released ten years ago. With its focus of R-rated behavior poking at the projected innocence of children, along with the couple of chromosomes that keep Bateman’s Trilby from being a Vince Vaughn character, this movie is certainly a product of the comedies that have sculpted out the manchild story in the past decade.

  • Winter's Tale

    The theatrical poster for “Winter’s Tale,” after promising that “It’s not a true story, it’s a love story,” made a large demand from its viewers at the bottom: “This Valentine’s Day, Believe In Miracles.” While there is indeed a difference between filmmaking and marketing, it is hard to not imagine writer/director Akiva Goldsman whispering “believe in miracles” into the ear of every executive who helped “Winter’s Tale” come to life, immediately after throwing glitter on them.
