No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Veering wildly between a quite well-written satire on the contemporary American political scene and a very ham-fisted nuclear blackmail thriller, its sheer eccentricity is quite engaging.
The star of Wrong Is Right is Sean Connery, giving the first uncertain performance of his otherwise exemplary career.
The film is rather haphazard in its visual style and plotting, tallying up to a confused condemnation of our lack of morality.
An almost prophetic comedy about political spin and the internecine battles between various intelligence agencies in the US.
