Editorial Reviews

An all-star cast led by Gabriel Byrne, Ben Kingsley, Mini Rogers, Jeffrey Tambor, Illeana Douglas, Paul Mazursky, Chris Mulkey and Kathy Baker takes on a shattering expose of the back-stabbing world of big business from the award- winning pen of Larrry Gelbart (Tootsie/TV's M*A*S*H). Two media moguls with the world at their feet- under their feet in fact- want more. Each wants the other out of his way so he can be No. 1 and what starts as battle to buy football team ends up as a media war with no holds barred. Their weapons: the newspapers, magazines and television stations they own. Their ammunition: blackmail, bribery, sexual manipulation and revelation. These two businessmen are about to discover that when it comes to taking care of business, there are no weapons deadlier than the WEAPONS OF MASS DISTRACTION.

When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Format: VHS Tape
Kingsly and Byrne are excellent in this biting satire that often turns to black comedy in an excellent commentary on modern high-powered wheeling and dealing in the corporate world. Twists and turns galore in a tightly woven plot that promises and delivers surprise after surprise in a wonderfuly written plot. Equally engaging is the sub-plot of Mr. and Mrs. anyone caught up in the aftermath of the duel between two media mogules (hence the title).
An intelligent and engaging well writen movie for those who like to think about and be caught up in their entertainment.

This movie displays in graffic style the damage done to ordinary people during the high profile business "war games" played out by too wealthy businessmen. Gabriel Byrne is superb, Ben Kingsley is up to the task as his adversary. Very relevant to today's world

If you want to see one of the best, maybe the best, satire on the media (maybe topping even "Network"?), then this movie is for you. Don't miss it. I swear, a number of times I laughed so hard I cried.

This is a Hollywood in your face about how the media works and why. It vividly shows how the average citizen is manipulated and possibly destroyed by the whims of La Richesse.
