    This review contains spoilers, click expand 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. Expand

    There is no sense of who Cheney is, beyond his restatements.

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

    The World According to Dick Cheney has some chilling moments, from his dispassionate description of waterboarding ("It creates a sensation of drowning") to his 9/11 narrative, in which he takes responsibility for having authorized the shooting down of Flight 93 if it approached Washington. What it doesn't have is a lot of navel-gazing.
