Featuring exclusive interviews with Cheney, his closest allies, and his fiercest critics, The World According to Dick Cheney charts the former vice president’s journey from a jailhouse in small-town Wyoming to the inner sanctums of the White House. Revered by his supporters and loathed by his detractors, Cheney enjoyed a career that spanned four decades, culminating in his eight years as the most controversial and, in his words, “most consequential” vice president ever.
Cutler and Finton’s brilliant film unfolds like a chess game, carefully balancing the illuminating philosophy, complex psychology, arrogance, and dedication of this family man, fisherman, and staunch patriot. - D. C.
