A bombardier in World War II tries desperately to escape the insanity of the war. However, sometimes insanity is the only sane way cope with a crazy situation. Catch-22 is a parody of a "military mentality" and of a bureaucratic society in general.


Catch as catch can. Joseph Heller's attack on every aspect of modern society comes to life on screen in this anti:war,capitalism,religon,pride,self importance,new deal,consumerism movie. Alan Arkin plays a man who realizes that his enemies aren't the one who the government tell him but are who ever is trying to kill him. And that being the rule of thumb he comes to the conclusion that the US Army is his enemy. This and other hilarious outtakes on the insanity of war, including Milo Minderbinder's bombing of his own fortress for profits for the army. Watch this puppy to many times and you might just begin to realize that there isn't anything in the world that isn't a catch 22. It's enough to drive you to the point nipple shaving insanity. And stop calling me shirley.
