Weekend Tribute to Mike Nichols: Watch ‘Catch 22’ Online Free

Catch-22-DI

Catch-22 is a satirical novel by American author Joseph Heller, set during World War II from 1942 to 1944. It uses a distinctive non-chronological third-person omniscient narration, describing events from the points of view of different characters. The separate story lines are out of sequence so that the timeline develops along with the plot.

The novel follows Captain John Yossarian, a U.S. Army Air Forces B-25 bombardier. Most of the events in the book occur while the fictional 256th Squadron is based on the island of Pianosa, in the Mediterranean Sea, west of Italy. The novel looks into the experiences of Yossarian and the other airmen in the camp. It focuses on their attempts to keep their sanity in order to fulfill their service requirements so that they may return home.

The phrase “Catch-22” has entered the English language, referring to a type of unsolvable logic puzzle.

Buck Henry wrote the screenplay. Mike Nichols directed.
