Should Be Required Viewing
3 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The Big Buy" should be required viewing for every voter, every church-attender, and every Republican convention and caucus in the United States. It is told in the style of "Frontline," "60 Minutes," and "Now," with commentary from numerous people and video clips of speeches, interviews, and press conferences. I had read Molly Ivins' columns for years, but had never seen video footage of her or heard her speak. I was surprised by both her appearance and her voice. Jim Hightower, as usual, provides many poignant ideas. When he stands at an intersection that marks the boundaries of new congressional districts, one cannot help but think that what has happened in Texas is absurd. This film is informative and "tells it like it is." It is definitely one movie that will not waste the viewer's time.
