The Best, 9 Nov 2013
Simply the best American film about American politics. It's all there: the political boss, ballot stuffing, the ineffectual politician, cronyism, the shakedown; and all dished out in a satire that to this day that has yet to be matched. "You wanna be reform mayor? All right. You're in. You gotta kiss a lot of babies, squeeze a lot of mitts. Wear your old clothes. They don't want no dudes after Tillinghast. And another thing. You gotta get married. Maybe you haven't heard. Women got the vote now. They don't like bachelors."
