Synopsis:

The story of Dick Cheney, an unassuming bureaucratic Washington insider, who quietly wielded immense power as Vice President to George W. Bush, reshaping the country and the globe in ways that we still feel today.

Continuing his move away from outright comedy, Adam McKay follows up 2015’s The Big Short with a scathing critique of Dick Cheney (Bale) who many believe is responsible for the rise of the far right TV networks of the Us, rollbacks on energy reform, the invasion of Iraq and the torture of many. For those with left leaning ideals (like myself) it is a wonderful critique of corruption and power.
