IMDB: Weiner (2016) - IMDB
IMDB Rating: 7.8
Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 8.3
The filmmakers have instead provided a brilliant window into the impact of the contemporary media circus on public life. While not exactly a figure of sympathy - he lied, after all, more than once - Weiner nevertheless maintains the charisma and drive to provide the movie with one of the most compelling anti-heroes in recent memory.
The Guardian -
A riveting excursion into fear and loathing on the campaign trail.
Entertainment Weekly -
If this soap opera wasn't real, you'd never believe it.
The Hollywood Reporter -
It's an invigorating chance to experience from afar an ordeal that, unless your name is Eliot Spitzer, you and I will never have to endure.
An examination of disgraced New York Congressman Anthony Weiner's mayoral campaign and today's political landscape.
