REVIEW FOR WAG THE DOG - ENGLISH COMEDY FILM AT SYN
Nothing like a good carping session on American foreign policy, to lend meaning to your Sunday. Here's where you can watch one.
Creaking Projectors and Seagrams 100 Pipers is screening 'Wag The Dog', on 22nd August, at Syn, Taj Deccan.
'Wag The Dog' is a 1997 black comedy film starring Robert De Niro and Dustin Hoffman.
Wag The Dog was produced and directed by Barry Levinson. The screenplay was credited to Hilary Henkin and David Mamet. The film is based on the novel "American Hero" by Larry Beinhart, which was a take on George Bush's Desert Storm.
The movie is about a Washington spin doctor who, merely days before a presidential election, distracts the electorate from a sex scandal by hiring a Hollywood film producer to construct a fake war with Albania.
The scheme enlists the aid of a country music singer, who creates several theme songs for the war, a "fad king" and a costume designer, who helps create a fictional special forces unit to fight the war's supposed battles.
Entry tickets are priced at Rs. 100 per head. Please contact 6666-3939 for further details.
