Dir. Elaine May (1987). Elaine Mays droll film maudit is the most adroit political satire to emerge from Hollywood during the Iran-Contra stupefaction of Reagan's second term and all too aware of its existential pathos. The image of two clowns (Dustin Hoffman and Warren Beatty) crawling around the Sahara in the company of a blind camel is worthy of Beckett.
