The response to the Showtime documentary, "The World According to Dick Cheney," has been nearly unanimous. While most critics agree that it is exhaustive (and, at 110 minutes, even exhausting), they likewise conclude that the mammoth undertaking is missing one crucial element: contrition by the subject himself. "If you want to be loved," Dick Cheney remarks to the camera at one point, "go be a movie star."
