A Fortuitous Choice

A documentary of the Bill Clinton 1992 presidential campaign and the organization who ran it.

Wile this film was great in its own time, it has only gained in importance since. First of all, the choice to follow Clinton is an interesting one. While he ultimately won, at the beginning of the campaign, Clinton was losing to Paul Tsongas. It would be a very strange film if it followed a candidate who never even won the primary. Would such a film be completed or would they just scrap the whole project? But those involved have risen. George Stephanopoulos has become an important political commentator. James Carville is a legend. The Clinton family has had political influence far beyond 1992 (though it took quite a hit in 2016). And then there is Rahm Emanuel, who could someday make a run of his own.

Amazingly superficial

I had seen the 'War Room' referred to in at least two articles I've read in past months dealing with the Clinton/Trump presidential race. Now, having seen it I wonder why it was mentioned at all. An incredibly superficial ninety-six minutes of film clips strung together with no commentary or on-screen captions to reveal dates, locations or personalities. Plenty of shots of Carville on the phone but as the person he's speaking to isn't heard it's a bit like reading only the left-hand pages of a novel because all the right-hand pages are blank. Lots of clips of people talking to each other but mostly breezy chit-chat and laughter with no real substance to help the viewer understand what was going on.

No doubt this visual stream of consciousness style of documentary can deliver a coherent movie on any subject but it would take a director's skill and planning to make it work, if the 'War Room' is the best of the hours and hours of shot material I reckon it's a dismal failure and I doubt many of the folk who sat through it all will see it twice.

compelling inside look

It's 1992. This documentary follows the Clinton campaign from the New Hampshire primary to its Little Rock headquarters as they win a landslide victory over Bush Sr. The team is led by the bombastic raging Cajun James Carville and the scholarly Greek George Stephanopoulos. They face scandals like Jennifer Flowers and draft dodging allegations. They try to work on a story of Bush printing campaign material in Brazil but nobody is willing to write it up. Then there is Perot walking away from the election and finally entering the fight. It's a great insight into the heart of the operation. It's not all cleaned up for the camera such as when George plays hardball against a final minute allegation that Clinton fathered a black baby. It is possibly the first of its kind and maybe not to be repeated. It's also fascinating that these characters would become political TV stars. It's a behind-the-scenes look unlike anything before or possibly since.
