Where in the World Is Osama bin Laden?

Morgan Spurlock is smart. If he called the movie Why Osama Bin Laden Is Irrelevant, which he certainly knew before he began, it would have garnered a lot less interest. And then his target audience would have missed out on some good conversations he had with people at all levels of society throughout the Middle East, which reveal that the world’s real problems are poverty and the codependency of extremists and corrupt governments. As filmmaking, this is colorful, somewhat preachy infotainment, just like Super Size Me was. Spurlock is basically Michael Moore minus the self-aggrandizement, and this film does its job well enough.
