A Bridge of a Film
30 May 2017 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

Those who played prominent roles in Clinton's 1992 Presidential campaign return to discuss how politics and the media have changed since that time.

This film is not just a great look back at "The War Room" and a nice catching up with the major players involved, but a discussion of how politics and campaigns changed in 1992 and how they have changed even more since then. Technology is a big part of course, but not just that -- as Frank Luntz (of all people) explains so well, the use of language has really shifted things.

I see this film as a bridge between "The War Room" and the books "Game Change" and "Double Down". Exploring campaigns is now a regular thing. In fact, just today (May 2017), I heard a program about a new book examining why Hillary Clinton's campaign failed. Has this interest been sparked by "The War Room"?
