Out of the initial, pre-Sundance buzzed-about films, I'd have to say Morgan Spurlock's Where in the World is Osama is the one flick everyone is talking about. Spurlock, as you know, is the filmmaker behind the hit documentary Super Size Me, where he documented himself eating McDonalds (and only McDonalds) for 30 days straight. Now Spurlock is back with his second feature-length doc, and it apparently follows the man to the Middle East in search of the elusive Osama Bin Laden. Earlier in the year, 15 minutes of footage was shown to an elite group of buyers at the Berlin Film Fest, and it was all anyone was talking about for a few days. Just recently, the film's DP, Daniel Marricone, went on record saying Spurlock "definitely got the holy grail" with regards to the film, prompting the entire internet community to ask: So, is it possible that Spurlock actually found Osama?
Well, with the film's official Sundance premiere only a few days away, the big secret might have been revealed. Slashfilm received an email from someone in Utah who claims to have seen the film, and they go on to spoil exactly what happens at the very end. Of course, we cannot confirm this information to be accurate, but it definitely seems in line with everything we've heard about the doc thus far. Don't worry, I won't ruin it for you, but I will give away the premise (spoilers ahead): Apparently, Spurlock's girlfriend is pregnant and giving birth in 8 weeks. So, in an attempt to make the world a safer place before his child is born, he decides to head out to the Middle East and track down the world's most well-known terrorist, Osama Bin Laden. Does he find him? Head on over to Slashfilm to find out that answer, or don't and wait for our review from Sundance next week.
