Jon Ronson in his non-fiction book with the same title told of coming upon a secret branch of the U S military involved in New Age-style paranormal research. Critical opinion has divided about how successfully this notion, including, yes, killing by staring, has been turned into a fictional movie. The 'crazy comedy of military madness' (Philip French, The Observer) has a high-class cast: Ewan MacGregor, Kevin Spacey and Jeff Bridges are all present and correct.
