Movie Info

This documentary follows Viktor Bout, a Russian entrepeneur, a war profiteer, an aviation magnate, an arms smuggler and, strangest of all, an amateur filmmaker. Until three days prior to his 2008 arrest on charges of conspiring to kill Americans, Bout kept the camera running, documenting a life spent in the grey areas of international law. Dubbed 'The Merchant of Death' and portrayed by Nicolas Cage in Hollywood's Lord of War, Viktor Bout can justifiably be called the world's most famous arms dealer. With unprecedented access to Bout's home movies and DEA surveillance material gathered during the sting operation to bring him down, this film is a portrait of a life much mythologised but little understood.
