Viewing this documentary about the 1994 Virginia senatorial race between Chuck Robb and Oliver North, we were absolutely astonished to discover that political candidates are branded, packaged and peddled to voters like soft drinks. What's more -- are you sitting down? --
it appears that campaign managers are cynical types who have been known to resort to dirty tricks in order to win elections. Worst of all, many of Oliver North's most enthusiastic supporters seem to be fanatical right-wingers. Who knew? Skillfully constructed and intermittently funny, this
"behind-the-scenes" exposé tells us absolutely nothing we don't already know.
