It's a testament to the supreme skills of Hegedus and Pennebaker that they managed to craft a film that so easily could have gone astray.

It's so intoxicating that sometimes it's easy forget we are, in effect, watching a couple of pitch men selling that year's newest brand of soap.

Illustrates in often amusing detail how the Clinton team managed to overcome petty hostilities and seize the day -- and the White House.

Politics as sporting event run by wonks. Fascinating but repellent in trademark Pennebaker-Hegedus fashion.

Backroom politics has now been exposed-a high stakes game, but no mystery.
