    Our Brand Is Crisis well demonstrates the international efficacy of the methods used to twice elect Bill Clinton. Unlike in "The War Room," the charismatic Carville makes but fleeting appearances in this docu, and it suffers as a result. show more

    Never more than a dull and confused film about Bolivia's 2003 presidential election. show more
