Without even realizing it, Gulf War veterans Denzel Washington and Liev Schreiber play foot soldiers in a conspiracy that reaches the highest level of American government, in "The Manchurian Candidate" (2004), this tense, stylish remake of John Frankenheimer's 1962 classic thriller. It is Washington's Ben Marco who realizes that something happened to their unit during the war. His nightmares clue him into the brainwashing they endured and lead him to a sinister plot that ties into his former commanding officer Vice Presidential run. Meryl Streep costars as the candidate's (Schreiber's) diabolical U.S. Senator mother. DVD extras include audio commentary, featurette, deleted/extended scenes and Schreiber's screen test.
