Valuable information obscured by heavy handed production, 9 February 2007
Author: bjackson98226 from Washington state, USA

This is the best documentary yet on the vicious reichwing assault on Bill Clinton. The sound bites tell a powerful, disgusting story of the gang of thugs who had Clinton in their cross hairs from his earliest days in politics, with a bottomless pit of funding from Richard Mellon Scaiffe.

Unfortunately, the comments are obscured and sometimes literally covered up by the melodramatic, amateurish music and a horrible audio mix. The production values are pure Public Access TV at best.

Thus I give this important film a 10 for content and a one - since you don't have a zero - for production, an average of 5.
