A Superbly Crafted Film,
This review is from: Election  [DVD] (DVD)
Alexander Payne has come up with a film that is such a delight to watch again and again. It is a film which glaringly shows up the fallibility of most human beings. It is also a film where all the characters look normal, not like they've just stepped off the pages of a glossy magazine. I have not seen Broderick and Witherspoon perform better than in Election.
Some people may view Election as too cynical for their tastes. Indeed, if you want an idealistic film, you should look elsewhere. But if want a film that shows up the weaknesses inherent in all of us, you can do no better than Election.
