Dick Cheney, more interesting than Donald Trump? It is said the british actor Christian Bale, who plays the former vice-president George W. Bush in Vice , in the dining hall on Wednesday in france. Rewarded with a Golden Globe for his performance, the comedian has been estimated on Monday that this man’s “shadow” was a much better character than the ebullient head of the american State.
Dick Cheney “has had a role extraordinarily central in recent decades in the United States and in the political situations worldwide,” said Christian Bale, nominated for the best actor Oscar for this role, at a press conference at the Berlinale, where Vice of Adam McKay is presented out of competition.

“Even if it may have led to this era, it is completely different from Trump, in the sense that Cheney was very bad for campaigning, and didn’t like any of it. While Trump, this seems to be the only thing he loves,” he added. “Cheney understood the power of silence. We can’t say that to Trump. He liked to know that the true power is to be in the shade and work this way”.

Portrait of vitriol from Dick Cheney, halfway between farce, burlesque and tragedy, Vice , which was shortlisted in eight categories for the Oscars, went back-and-forth between the man of power in the White House, technocrat cultivating discretion and embodiment of the hard line of the neo-cons, americans, and the young man from Wyoming, drinker, and brutal, who will be expelled from the university of Yale.
“It is more the result of fifty years of a certain type of policy that followed the revolution of reagan and the revolution republican in the United States”
“In terms of real consequences of the choices he made, of power, etc, it is much more powerful and terrifying than any other character I’ve ever been able to consider playing as any other character’s iconic,” said Christian Bale, whose performance was hailed by critics. “A critical thing is to know that you’ll be obsessed by him (the character) for at least three months,” said the actor, unrecognizable under layers of makeup in the film and that has taken more than 20 kg to play Dick Cheney.

director Adam McKay has pointed out that it was also more interesting to make a portrait of Dick Cheney as Donald Trump. “I’m personally not motivated by a portrait of Trump,” he said. “It is more the result of fifty years of a certain type of policy that followed the revolution of reagan and the revolution republican to the United States,” he said. “What drew me into the story of Dick Cheney is that he is just in the middle of all this.”
