Osama

In war-ravaged Afghanistan, where material goods (except guns) are notably absent, a simple vat of milk takes on immense symbolism. So it is in this searing depiction of life under Taliban rule. Sylphlike Marina Golbarhari is a revelation as the terrified twelve-year-old forced to disguise herself as a boy to find work. Someone should pin Dick Cheney's eyelids open and make him watch this film — which subtly indicts U.S. policy — a thousand times.
