Dir. Grant Heslov, George Clooney
Rating: Rape, violence, cruelty, & offensive language.
Genres: Television, Action/Adventure, Comedy / War

Aroview: Updated six-part adaptation of the difficult-to-adapt classic Joseph Heller novel, a WWII satire which was formerly adapted as a feature film in 1970, and here is developed by Australians Luke Davies (CANDY) and David Michod (ANIMAL KINGDOM).

Christopher Abbott leads the ensemble cast as a US bombardier who is furious that thousands of people are trying to kill him and that his own army keeps increasing the number of missions he must fly. He is trapped by the bureaucratic rule Catch-22, which considers a willingness to fly dangerous combat missions to be insane, yet a request to be relieved of duty on the grounds of insanity to be the process of a rational mind, so any such request must be denied.
