    Cheney shot someone in the face and got away with it. When Clinton did that he was impeached. 5 years 4 months ago

    The makeup and hair was amazing, the ageing effects and just how uncannily they looked like their real life counterparts. 5 years 4 months ago

    As a film, "Vice" is better than "The Big Short". It is mostly clear, direct, honest while being entertaining. Christian Bale is phenomenal, and his supporting cast excellent. If Lynne Cheney was more of a public figure, more could be said of Amy Adams' performance, but instead accolades will go the male stars who held power. It is still just a "good" film, perhaps not a great film. Little of the information presented here is or should be new to those awake during the Bush years. Nonetheless, the people who pay attention are not McKay's primary audience.

    As a political argument, "Vice" is a knockout punch. It is a bullet to the second-hand heart of Dick Cheney - a man McKay presents evidence to show as the epitome of corruption, unconstitutional power grabs, war mongering and evil. Nonetheless, this is not entirely a hit job, though it's hard to be sympathetic. One could argue (and McKay does) that Cheney's power-grabs and "Unitary Executive Theory" coupled with Fox News laid the groundwork for fascism in America, and then left it all in place when he retired -- leaving it to a less skilled politico who will continue to abuse it.

    In any case, a good film worthy of praise. Fascinating and entertaining.
