Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939) Oh, you just gotta like this idealistic look at Washington
The Candidate (1972) a sexy Robert Redford combined with a smart suspenseful story
Wag the Dog (1997) A very cynical look at American politics
Bulworth (1998) weirdly goofy Warren Beatty movie
Primary Colors (1998) John Travolta does a surprisinly good Bill Clintonmerican politics, but gets ya thinkin'
Dick (1999) silly teens in the Nixon whitehouse -- silly but fun!
Election (1999) Matthew Broderick and Reese Witherspoon high school election satire. HIGH- larious! One of my favorites.
Thank You for Smoking (2006) Sexy Aaron Eckhart as smarmy tobacco lobbyist -- a strangely good combination
Recount (2008) (see earlier review) great recap of what happened in Florida during the 2000 presidentical election -- and a great movie
