Imagine a Bulworth come forth today

I guessing a lot of DU has seen the movie, it stars Warren Beatty as a politician who finally tells the truth about what's happening behind closed doors. Someone who comes to the point of not giving a damn any more and decides to unload every dirty thing he knows, every back room deal, every quid pro quo.

It's a movie that's not only funny but sad and terrifying and I wonder if it would make any difference at all if a high level politician actually did it.

1. We can only hope. Another one you might remember... Remember Chance, the gardener?

3. I watched that on video...

There was kind of a party sort of thing going on at the time and I don't remember it very well though.

4. Both excellent movies -- a studio wouldn't make them, today

 

I suppose they'd have to hope for some kind of indie release, or cable, if they were trying to get made now...

5. If I remember correctly it didn't end well for him?

Plus was he really all that honest?

6. Would you expect it to end well for anyone who did that?

Judging from the reactions of the people in the theater with me that day, yeah I think it was more accurate than not.
