Todays movie is Wag the Dog

This movie is about a time close to an American election. But, not long before the election, a story about the President (Michael Belson) fooling around with a dancing girl is leaked and so the White House calls in Conrad Brean (Robert De Niro) a man who can spin this or make the people ignore it. So Brean decides to invent a war between the USA and Albania. He hires a movie producer (Dustin Hoffman) and the two of them try to make a movie and footage to temporarily convince the American people there is a threat and to keep them distracted.

This movie is very similar to Doctor Strangelove It shows how a war can arise out of something really silly. This is a really good movie but there are still many better movies.
