Late ’80s Baghdad. Summoned to the court of Saddam, Iraqi lieutenant Latif Yahia (Cooper) enters a gold-plated hell when he’s forced to play body-double to the monstrous Uday Hussein (Cooper again), the tyrant’s sadistic son.
A blistering, brutal Iraqi Scarface. You do wonder what the point of it all is, but Cooper is fantastic. Twice.
