Wag The Dog

Description
Just a few days before the last president election, a sex scandal happens to an important candidate - the Washinton D.C spin-doctor. He tries his best to take citizen's attention away from that scandal by making up a imaginary war with Albania, hoping the media will concentrate on this instead. He hires a Hollywood producer to create a fake context of war

'Wag the Dog,' a movie that's fun to see more than once, comes across as a bitingly funny satire of politics, the media and show business.

Amusing as it is, Wag The Dog does what it purports to sat irize -- the bark is real but the teeth aren't.

A wicked smart satire on the interlocking worlds of politics and show business, Wag the Dog confirms every awful thought you've ever had about media manipulation and the gullibility of the American public.

Hilary Henkin and David Mamet's script is gleefully hyperbolic without ever straying from its political target.

Anyone who would be inherently interested in this kind of sendup is unlikely to be surprised by anything in this film -- overall it feels like a trifle, if an entertaining one.
