What is your favorite political movie?
Asked at Borders, 700 N.H. on September 15, 2008
““All the President’s Men.” It was such an outstanding movie, and of course I lived through the events in it. I thought the way it was done was very informative. I didn’t feel like I was being sold a point of view.”
“It’s a tie between both versions of “The Manchurian Candidate,” and then probably “Primary Colors.”
““Bob Roberts” is pretty good. It’s a satire, or mockumentary, about a congressional race.”
““The Last Hurrah,” with Spencer Tracy. It’s about a grass-roots leader losing a bid for re-election against those with the money and interests.”
