The War Room Review


Excellent
Favorite thing about this classic Chris Hegedus and D.A. Pennebaker documentary about the 1992 Clinton campaign: Listening to James Carville's Louisiana twang for two hours. The pair of documentarians (who offer no commentary at all; the film speaks for itself entirely) gain amazing insight into the political process, the minutiae of how the campaigners attempt to build stories for the press, how speeches are written, and how genuinely hateful the opposing parties are against each other. Fortunately for Carville and company, their man Clinton won the day; this would have been a savage film if it hadn't panned out. I'm apolitical and despise politics -- but looking back at this campaign 12 years after the fact is actually a little nostalgic and surprisingly fun. Now gimme more Carville!
