War Room, The: The Criterion Collection

The 1992 presidential election was a triumph not only for Bill Clinton but also for the new breed

of strategists who guided him to the White House and changed the face of politics in the process.

For this thrilling, behind-closed-doors account of that campaign, renowned cinema verité filmmakers

D. A. Pennebaker (Monterey Pop) and Chris Hegedus (Startup.com) closely followed the brainstorming

and bull sessions of Clinton's crack team of consultants-especially the folksy James Carville and the

preppy George Stephananopoulos, who became media stars in their own right as they injected a youthful

spirit and spontaneity into the process of campaigning. Fleet-footed and entertaining, The War Room is a

vivid document of a political moment whose truths ("It's the economy, stupid!") still ring in our ears.
