Early in his 20 hours of interviews with filmmaker R.J. Cutler, former Vice President Dick Cheney sniffs dismissively that politicians who “spend all their times trying to be loved by everybody probably aren't doing much. ... If you want to be loved, go be a movie star.”
The irony is that, after collaborating with Cutler, Cheney is a movie star, and a remarkable one. Cutler's documentary “The World According to Dick Cheney,” airing tonight at 8 CDT on Showtime, is a rousing piece of work.
