No, he did not find Osama bin Laden. And I don't think that's a spoiler. But Morgan Spurlock (of Super Size Me fame) did travel to Pakistan and Afghanistan with a camera in search of the famous terrorist, and some answers. In his new documentary, Where in the World is Osama bin Laden, he wanted to understand America's public enemy No. 1, and what he sees as a culture of fear in the U.S. Reviews so far are decent: well-paced and thoughtful, if too much Morgan. Come Friday you can see for yourself, the film opens this weekend. Morgan Spurlock joins Neal on the show today to talk about the film, how he made it, and how he decided to hunt the world's most wanted man as a follow-up to Super Size Me.
