Your review of 'The State Within (DVD)' has been sent.
“Taut, compelling drama thinly disguising the intricate dance the U.S. and Great Britain, and other nationalities, play on the world stage and behind the scenes. Countries like "Tygystan" stand in for Iraq or any other country the U.S. wants to war with. Fine performances from Jason Isaacs as Mark Brydon, a gleefully cold Sharon Gless gives Lynn Warner, the U.S. Secretary of State, a sheen of reality and the whirr to the wheels within wheels. Supporting performances equally excellent”
