Sharply critical of the almost surreal bureaucracy of war, this scathing satire is based on Joseph Heller's novel. The story focuses on a group of Air Force pilots in the midst of WWII. The title refers to the twisted logic that makes up the pilots' standard military procedure. This film features a stellar cast and arguably the best American actor of the last 50 years, Alan Arkin.
