Christian Bale deserves whatever awards he wins this season for his portrayal of Dick Cheney at various periods of his life. And Amy Adams as his wife, Lynne Cheney, deserves her share of any award Bale wins too, because her impeccable performance only adds to the strength of his.

As for Adam McKay's direction, he repeats some of the techniques he used in THE BIG SHORT in VICE, but he also wrote VICE and though it's a pretty terrific history lesson about Dick Cheney's inordinate influence and impact on the wrong directions our country has taken in the last several decades, for me it could have been edited better.

But VICE is totally worth seeing, not only for Bale's and Adams' performances but definitely for them.
