Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden?

If Morgan Spurlock has learned anything from over 30 years of movie-watching, its that if the world needs saving, its best done by one lone man willing to face danger head on to take it down, action hero style. So, with no military experience, knowledge or expertise, he sets off to do what the CIA, FBI and countless bounty hunters have failed to do: find the worlds most wanted man. Why take on such a seemingly impossible mission? Simple-he wants to make the world safe for his soon to be born child. But before he finds Osama bin Laden, he first needs to learn where he came from, what makes him tick, and most importantly, what exactly created bin Laden to begin with.

Spurlock searches for Osama bin Laden by visiting countries associated with the Al-Qaeda leader (Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Afganistan, and Pakistan), as well as others affected by Al-Qaeda (Greece, Egypt, and Israel). In each, he interviews individuals about their views of the United States and Islamic fundamentalism. He also constantly asks people he meets, "Where is Osama bin Laden?" Intercut with Spurlock's search are the late stages of his wife's pregnancy and the birth of their son after he returns. Much of Spurlock's commentary is based on the concerns of a new father. (The film is dedicated to the newborn.)

I think I prefer documentaries in which the focus is on the subject, not the filmmaker. Spurlock leaves his wife while she's pregnant, then wants sympathy for the fact that he misses her. This seems self-serving and staged false "drama." I don't care about his wife or child and don't see how they relate to the rest of the movie.

The Taliban now runs most of Afghanistan. Support for the U.S. in that country has decreased due to the level of destruction and number of civilian deaths. What's most depressing about this documentary is seeing what worthless artifacts of American culture (i.e., pro wrestling) have crossed the cultural borders.
