No punkin'
26 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I first heard of this film, I thought of MEDIUM COOL (which I love), but I feel this film goes beyond that by engaging with the political arena like I've never seen before. TANNER '88 is also similar, but the candidates were in on it. What makes this film unique and amazing is that the fictional character Janeane is asking the candidates the same questions that a regular voter would have asked, but Janeane is a bit more forceful in her thirst for answers, and takes the candidates and their staffs out of their comfort zones. In a world of cynicism and hyperbole, Janeane cuts a sharp knife through the crap to try and get some solid answers - and further reveals the mainstream media for its failure to do the same. This is not a punkin' film. It's a fictional character asking simple questions to candidates who are seeking to be the next President of the United States.
