I have rewatched Our Brand Is Crisis and am changing my review. The documentary film provides amazing access to a group of people (mostly Amercians) trying to change the outcome of a presidential election in Bolivia through instrumental and deceptive methods. Unfolding in a true three-act structure, the film leaves you wondering up until the end who will win. However, the essence of the film transcends the outcome of the election and shows how neocons utilize ideology and personal interests that connect to the interests of the United States. The film is clear, despite the director's naive comments about "knowing people who have money in order to make a film." My previous review criticized the filmmaker for her outrageous and incorrect comments that reveal her worldview just as the film reveals the worldview of the subjects in the film. Overall, the film contains excellent scenes that that slowly build into a true narrative.
