Directed by Barry Levinson | 1997

With Dustin Hoffman, Robert De Niro, Anne Heche

“Hilarious, deadly stuff, sparked by the cynical gusto of the two leads.”
—Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

How a master spin-doctor (De Niro) deflects attention from a sex scandal threatening to sink the president’s reelection bid: enlist a Hollywood super-producer (Hoffman) to invent a phony Albanian war to play out on America’s TV screens. Released one month before the Clinton-Lewinsky affair broke, this acidly funny comedy (co-scripted by David Mamet) is a Network for the 90s.
