Uncle Saddam (2000)
A movie so derisive that the filmmaker had to be protected by security after its completion! French director Joel Soler shows how far Saddam Hussein will go with this disturbingly hilarious look at the Iraqi leader. Using footage smuggled out of Iraq and from other sources, viewers follow Saddam's troubled childhood, his cruelty and deviousness, and odd quirks such as going fishing with hand grenades and an affection for lace wallpaper. Features narration written by Scott Thompson of "The Kids in the Hall." 63 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo; interviews; theatrical trailer.
