A timely and amazing political documentary.
30 July 2006 | by (St. Louis) – See all my reviews

This is a searing portrait of the American political system gone awry. The film documents a state Democratic primary election in Missouri, which is probably typical of state and local elections across the country. We follow a real-life grassroots campaign from start to finish. The film is a must-see for any young person interested in going into politics, as well as any voter who is hungry for the truth. Every second of this film is riveting and the conclusions it draws will shock and sadden. If you liked "Why We Fight," "Control Room," "The Corporation," or "The Fog of War" - this film will most likely further whet your appetite for government reform.
