Vice (15)

2018 USA directed by Adam Mckay, 132 minutes

In a remarkable physical transformation, Christian Bale plays Dick Cheney in this satirical biopic. The official version of the vice president’s role in promoting everything from torture to extraordinary rendition post 9/11 contrasts with director Adam McKay’s take. The film portrays him as a ‘Godfather’ character – a loving and caring father but ruthless self-interested manipulator who controlled a weak and buffoonish George W Bush. Bale won a Golden Globe for his performance and the makeup team won an Oscar.
