'The Notorious Mr. Bout' Clip

2y ago


Viktor Bout was a Russian entrepreneur, an aviation magnate, an arms smuggler and, strangest of all, an amateur filmmaker. Until three days prior to his 2008 arrest on charges of conspiring to kill Americans, Bout kept the camera running, documenting a life spent in the gray areas of international law. Dubbed the “merchant of death" and portrayed by Nicholas Cage in LORD OF WAR, Viktor Bout can justifiably be called the world's most famous arms dealer. With unprecedented access to Bout's home movies and DEA surveillance material gathered during the sting operation to bring him down, filmmakers Gerber (FULL BATTLE RATTLE) and Pozdorovkin (PUSSY RIOT: A PUNK PRAYER) paint an evocative portrait of a life much mythologized but little understood.
