Most Americans remember the First Gulf War as a quick and decisive U.S. victory, but director Jonathan Demme (Silence of the Lambs) sees it as the beginning of a White House corporate takeover in his 2004 version of Manchurian Candidate. Should shellshocked Denzel Washington get back on his meds, and stop accusing fellow soldier Liev Schrieber of being a sleeper agent?  Or is this Vice Presidential hopeful really in the pocket of Big Pharma, or worse… his mother Meryl Streep!?  Find out if this remake truly is a dream by Listening Now!
