DVD: "Syriana"

If you opt for this George Clooney film tonight, put away the laundry you had planned to fold and put on your thinking cap.

This politically-charged epic about the state of the oil industry is no light summer froth.

But if you're looking for something with a little more meat then, say, Kathy Griffin's life on the D-list, then this is a good option.
