  • The War Room

    1993. USA. Directed by D. A. Pennebaker, Chris Hegedus. The film is an endlessly fascinating look inside the shrewdest, funniest, most sophisticated political machine ever. It was made possible by the filmmakers’ unique degree of access to James Carville and George Stephanopoulos—Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign’s master strategists—and their inner sanctum, “the war room.” The two prove wonderfully dramatic complementary forces: George, a darkly handsome, winsome, and serious thirty-one-year-old former Rhodes Scholar; James, a sly, passionate, expletive-spewing Cajun. 96 min.
