The Manchurian Candidate (2004) {Manchurian Candidate Series}

November 10, 2020

Most Americans remember the First Gulf War as a quick and decisive U.S. victory, but director Jonathan Demme (Silence of the Lambs) sees it as the beginning of a White House corporate takeover in his 2004 version of Manchurian Candidate.
