Summer Movie Guide

By Craig Phillips

With Sacha Baron Cohen’s farce The Dictator about to march onto screens worldwide, it seemed a good time to look back at some of the most unforgettably loony and comical dictators seen on film. A few of these are wholly fictional but many are based loosely on real-life tyrants who made people’s lives miserable—and not in humorous ways. But through pain often comes great—if dark—comedy, as these films arguably attest.

    Whatt?!?!?!? Where's Moon over Parador. Richard Dreyfuss and Raul Julia were hilarious.
