  • Skrovan swears that during two years of filming, Nader's only demand was, "Make sure you talk to people who oppose me." show more

  • Editors Alexis Provost and Beth Gallagher cut back and forth between the talking heads so deftly that you have the illusion that Nader is answering his critics in real time in a very lively debate. show more

  • The film contends admiringly, and convincingly, that Ralph Nader's authentic sense of outrage is the reason he persists when he can't prevail.
