ok documentary that follows philip seymore hoffman in the months before the 2000 election as he asks various people what they think about the country from a political perspective. it’s a fairly non-partisan approach to the issues of the country and politics in general. they lean to the left and as a result bring nader into the debate more than the mainstream media did. some of the musical interludes detracted from the film and at times it felt like there was too much montage. there’s not much new ground covered here and it’s kinda funny watching this stuff now that the bush era is finally done. many of the issues have gotten so much worse and it was pre-9/11 so obviously a lot has changed since it was made.
