Meet The 20th Century's "Nasty 6"
2 August 2020 | by StrictlyConfidentialSee all my reviews

"The Dictator's Playbook" is a 2-disc, 5-hour-40-minute presentation looking back (individually) at 6 of the world's nastiest dictators of the 20th century (sans Adolf Hitler).

From all over the globe (Korea, Italy, Uganda, Panama) - It seems that being a ruthless, iron-fisted tyrant is a universal thing rather than being isolated to certain cultures or races of people.

Through individual observation this documentary takes a close-up look at each one of these brutal monsters' personality traits, early backgrounds, and vicious tactics of control.

Believe me - These "Nasty 6" are the sort of men who you are gonna just love to hate.
