George Clooney is one of the stars in the latest adaptation of Joseph Heller’s satirical war novel.
Set in World War II, Christopher Abbott plays Captain John Yossarian, a pilot who wants to get out of combat by faking insanity, but there is a catch. “Catch-22”. Anyone who wants to get out of combat duty isn’t really crazy.”
For Yossarian, his really enemies are those on his side rather than the Axis, in particular the parade-obsessed Scheisskopf (Clooney).
Catch-22 is on Channel 4 at 21.00.
