  • Running just a little over two hours and wordily narrated by talk-radio host Amy Goodman, Stephen Vittoria's hagiography spends more time bemoaning the past 30 years of U.S. political history and setting the dismal tone for McGovern's arrival on the political scene than it does on his 1972 campaign. show more

  • Instructive but aggressively biased liberal history lesson. show more

  • Lively documentary about McGovern's disastrous run for the US presidency. The interviews with him are worth the price of admission. show more
