Promised Land

Description

Directed by Gus Van Sant and featuring Matt Damon in the leading role, Promised Land centers on the ace of the oil industry, Steve Butler, a corporate salesman, who is sent to rural American town to secure the drilling rights of his company to tap into the local resources. The town is going thru an uneasy times after the world financial crisis, and, in these times, the establishing the office and production platforms could be in-need for the locals, especially considering the buying drilling rights from local authorities. However, what seemed as easy procedure at the first look, turned to uneasy challenge for Steve. Now he has to rethink all of his beliefs and approaches to life. The movie is a subject of criticism concerning the facts that the major sponsor of its production is Abu Dhabi Media, which is totally owned by United Arab Emirates. It's believed that due to this sponsorship, the film puts shale fracking being described in the movie in a bad light, as it significantly increased the oil-producing capabilities of USA and reduced the oil import from UAE. Nevertheless, Promised Land allows us to enjoy brilliant play of Matt Damon, which is considered to be as "top-level" as it was in The Adjustment Bureau, True Grit and The Informant!

Undoubtfully, cinematography has been my passion since a very young age. Even now, watching a new movie or series always prompts me to ask a lot of questions to the author. Thus, every little essay about a title is definitely not a spoiler, but rather an attempt to explore the idea.

They take on the case involving a hospital ER nurse named Vicky (Vinessa Shaw from Two Lovers, Stag Night) who accidently stuck herself with a syringe. Seems the big drug companies prevent the use of safer syringes to ward off such accidents happening. They seem willing to risk permanent and sometimes fatal results without consideration for others.ach year millions risk infection and contamination by such diseases as Hepatitis C and even HIV when accidental pricks occur. This time around there are two young lawyers who care enough to pursue it to a settlement even though it stretches their law firms business to near collapse. This even takes on international proportions because of the millions who die each year in Africa due to faulty syringes.
