Description

The Notorious Mr. Bout is the ultimate rags-to-riches-to-prison memoir. With unprecedented access to Viktor Bout's home movies and DEA surveillance material gathered during the sting operation to bring him down, The Notorious Mr. Bout is an epic portrait of a life much mythologized but little understood.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
