Wag the Dog

Watched “Wag the Dog” on DVD. It is an excellent movie that merges so peacefully to the recent memory of “Fahrenheit 9/11“. Both films have a lot of common ideas, one of which is that mass media plays an enourmous role in what we think and beleive in. This is more true of America I guess, which is a country will very developed mass media (networks and staff like that).

There is a whole bunch of excellent acting in this film. Dustin Hoffman and Robert De Niro are brilliant. Woody Harrelson had a short and silent role, but he was great too. Few other people added to the quality of the film.

The difficult thing to say about this film is what genre it is. IMDB rates it as comedy, but it is not exactly a comedy. It has a little bit of everything. I would put it into what IMDB usually classifies as an independent movie.

See it if you have a chance. 8 out of 10.
