Vice Rated 15


Dir. Adam McKay. USA, 2018. 2h 12m. Starring Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Steve Carell, Bill Pullman, Sam Rockwell, Alison Pill.

Intoxicating biopic charting Dick Cheney’s rise from boozy dropout to becoming the most powerful VP in US history. Christian Bale’s transformative performance is central to Adam McKay’s brash political comedy. Nominated for eight Oscars, including Best Lead Actor.

‘It's a more ambitious political satire...Because it's about real people, real politicians and real deranged ambitions, and it places much of the blame for today's geopolitical ills...directly at their door. Oh, and it's also very funny.’ ★★★★ Kevin Maher, The Times

‘It is a head-spinning shock-and-awe satire that comes in hot then cranks up the thermostat to infernal - a Molotov cocktail of biopic, documentary and black comedy, with a thrillingly short fuse.’ ★★★★ Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
