Can Mr. Smith Get to Washington Anymore Reviews

Como documentarista, Popper curiosamente reflete as virtudes e fragilidades de seu protagonista: tem o coração no lugar certo, mas demonstra inexperiência ao criar uma narrativa com certo carisma, mas claramente amadora.

| Original Score: 2/5

Can Mr. Smith Get to Washington Anymore? is an amusing case study in youthful enthusiasm for the electoral process, but this modest documentary skips the weighty issues posed by its namesake, the Frank Capra 1939 drama.

For all its rah-rah David-vs.-Goliath populism, Can Mr. Smith understands that even an uncorrupted outsider like Smith must master the art of campaign gamesmanship to be successful.

[Director Frank] Popper sticks close to the fierce campaigner and his young, mostly inexperienced staffers, capturing all the energy, idealism, dour humor, and unreasoning hope of a Cinderella candidacy.

The movie is breezy, fun and keeps comin' at ya. Politics needs more of this and less of what went on in Ohio.

Very enjoyable debut feature...Popper's camera captures the angst of the grassroots crusade in its massive slog for integrity on the campaign trail.

Mr. Smith captures ground-level political machinations in an utterly fascinating way. The question raised by the title makes for an interesting, if possibly disheartening, debate.

Director Frank Popper has made a lively, engaging nail-biter of a film that recalls The War Room in its candor, intimacy and breathless pace.

Although the outcome is public record, pic is undeniably gripping as it reveals a distressing degree of voter complacency.
