Critic Reviews for The War Room
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.
An invaluable record of Bill Clinton's unlikely rise to the White House.
Audience Reviews for The War Room
Whats interesting is that the film is less of a story of Clinton's '92 Presidential Campaign, and more of a character study of James Carville and George Stephanopolous who organized (and arguably won) the race for Bill Clinton. The makers of this documentary were given remarkably close access to some very private moments and they capture the serious ups and down for the behind the scenes workers. Really whats most intriguing is the marriage of Carville to Mary Matalin, who was one of the top members of Bush's '92 Re-election campaign. There are some great cuts back and forth between Matalin and Carville bashing the others political party to the media.
