Mad Dog - Inside the Secret World of Muammar Gaddafi

Shocking, sometimes funny and completely compelling, Mad Dog: Inside the Secret World of Muammar Gaddafi takes viewers inside a horrifying and unbelievable secret world. This is the story of raw, absolute and unrestrained power exercised by a brilliant madman who terrorised and compromised Libyans and Western countries alike: a dictator whose oil billions gave him the means to do anything a human being can possibly imagine. Recreating life inside Libyan leader Colonel Gaddafi's palace, the film reveals how its courtiers and hangers-on - from nuclear smugglers to a virgin suicide squad - were often almost as weird as he was. From Brazil to Beirut, the filmmakers track down the men and women who served Gaddafi and gave shape to his dreams.
