The 2008 Brisbane International Film Festival is rockin this year with Japanese splatterfests andÂ searchÂ for Osama Bin Laden documentaries at the top of my must see list. I had the pleasure of knockin back a few beers with the creator of “Super Size Me”Â , Morgan Spurlock and my good buddy and international pop star Shaneal. Morgans new movie “Where in The World Is Osama Bin Laden” is an amazing eye opener of a movie and I had to congratulate Morgan on such great work. Better than Michael Moore ever did, better than anything Al Gore could conjure up and I can well say one of the most entertaining documentaries I’ve ever seen. In some parts its like a cool blockbuster movie rather than a documentary. Captivating, funny and informative whileÂ counteringÂ a great message that theres real people like you and me in the Middle East who want the same things out of life.Â I have been to Iraq and Afghanistan with the Australian Army and met a lot of the lovely people from these countries that you may have seen on over hyped and over done Fox newsÂ bulletinsÂ featuringÂ crazyÂ fundamentalists who give the wrong impression about these parts of the world. There are billions of people in these parts of the world who just want aÂ nice place to enjoy life and raise a family in peace but there are too many religions and religious leaders that use the worlds problems to gain power that they shouldn’t have. There needs to be a definite line where a religious leaders responsibilities or job stops and where a politicians begins. Religious leaders are NOT qualified to be politicians and in most countries we have moved on from the middle ages where our politicians were dressed as priests.Wow, I really didn’t think I had that in me!Mike Goldman and the boys at the Australian base in Kandihar, Afghanistan.
