Stórkostlegt! (Magnificent!)
23 March 2014 | by (Vermont) – See all my reviews

This fantastic documentary follows the campaign and election of Jon Gnarr, a comedian who became mayor of Reykjavik (Iceland's capital city) in 2010. He started his own political party -- the "Best Party" -- as somewhat of a joke, but it resonated with the Icelandic people at a time when the country was experiencing a major financial crisis and were fed up with corruption.

If you happen to be Iceland-obsessed, as I am, you will be thrilled by the Sugarcubes and Björk references, as well as a rare glimpse into the inner workings of the Icelandic political structure (which, in this case, challenges the existence of a structure altogether!). Also, if you've visited Iceland, as I have, you will adore the plethora of shots of Reykjavik landmarks, storefronts, and landscapes.

I cannot recommend this documentary highly enough -- it is hilarious, thought provoking, and inspiring.
