    Here Cheney sounds like he's still campaigning for viewers' votes as he defends the decision to go to war against Iraq, declines to admit that waterboarding is a form of torture, and only struggles for an answer when he is asked to name his main faults.

    The details of Cheney's fall from grace in the waning years of the Bush administration are fascinating and narratively satisfying.

    Cutler’s documentary The World According to Dick Cheney is a rousing piece of work.

    Many expected to see Cheney not just screwed, but nailed to the wall. This documentary comes awfully close.

    Not a lot new here, but Cheney gets a fair hearing--even though a tougher one is occasionally warranted.

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. Turns out, contrary to popular belief.... Dick Cheney has a heart. Cheney goes into depth about his alcoholic past, and his time in the white going from Watergate to Iraq. We understand the stresses of the Bush administration and the lies inside the executive branch. It is truly a compelling documentary. But it is also disturbing, Dick Cheney shows no remorse for any of his actions. Even the ones that cost lives. Full Review »
