Storyline

Ever since the events of 9/11, Rudy Giuliani has become a name recognized the world over. His role as mayor during that catastrophe elevated him to the status of an international hero. He went on to be Time magazine's "Person of the Year," receive a knighthood from Queen Elizabeth and become a key fund raiser and energetic campaigner for the Bush/Cheney administration. Over the last year his name has been rumored as a popular choice for not only senator and governor but as America's envoy to the United Nations, the new director of the CIA and a number of other high-profile positions. He is also talked about as a favored candidate for the 2008 GOP Presidential nomination. But what defined "America's Mayor" before he was catapulted to a kind of secular sainthood?

The Best Political Documentary in Ages!
13 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Giuliani Time is a must see for anyone who wants to have a deeper image of Giuliani than his heroic, Times person of the year image. This movie exposes the racist and oppressive effects of Giuliani's political machine on the city of New York. Giuliani Time uncovers astonishing truths that will shock both veteran New Yorkers and people who only know Giuliani as the hero of 9/11.

I personally Love this film and thought it was very well done. It is obvious that countless thought, work, and research went into this intriguing, informative, and entertaining film. Giuliani Time is a top quality political documentary that everyone should see!
