Audience Reviews for Primary
Historical film from a cinematic perspective. The Maysles Brothers charted new territory with this film. A behind the scenes access direct cinema approach had never been seen before this film. Essential viewing for any aspiring filmmaker. 5 stars!
While it might seem common today...two things about this film are unique. First it features what would prove to be one of the first primary elections that really mattered and secondly it was one of the first real candid looks at a presidental election. Works real well for what it is...a political documentary. If thats not your thing then you could skip it.
