Critic Reviews for The Hunting of the President
This is brilliantly persuasive film-making, assembling vivid first-hand testimonies and contemporary accounts with a concision that makes light of the story's complexities.
For a movie that desperately wants to be jazzy and light on its feet, it's sadly heavy-handed.
What comes across most strongly is how utterly trivial so much of this story now seems. Can we really have spent all that time, money and energy chewing over a land deal and worrying about a presidential dalliance?
Marred by juvenile editing tricks and a relentless advocacy tone on behalf of Clinton, the film is like a scent of incense that takes you back in time, but leaves out meaning or context.
Offers a lesson for both parties about what can happen when powerful forces unite to bring down a politician.
Audience Reviews for The Hunting of the President
An interesting documentary about the Republican smear campaign that started before Clinton took the oath, and culminated in his impeachment (although with anything this one-sided, you have to take everything with a grain of salt). But, its somewhat ruined by constantly cutting to old film clips that are supposed to humorously parallel what the interviewees are saying, as if they felt their target audience couldn't sit still for a straight documentary about politics. I guess its the post-Moore style now.
