Excellent, well-researched, fast-paced documentary about the conspiracy to destroy Bill Clinton. Provides alot of insight which helps in understanding all the controversial events surrounding the Clintons. After looking at the evidence presented in this documentary I am convinced Bill Clinton is innocent of many of the charges levelled against him over the past 20 odd years. Also included on the DVD is a fascinating extra where Bill Clinton talks to the audience after the premiere viewing of this film (2004). Well worth a viewing.

The film is presented as a documentary without loveable Michael Moore's loveable bombast. A rapier, rather than a broadsword has been used to dissect the loosely defined plot of a group of disappointed "wannabes in Arkansas" who thought that Governor, now President Bill, would get them plush jobs in Washington, DC. All of their fantasies were paid for by rich right-wingers who never forgave the Democrats for bringing down Richard M. Nixon thanks to Watergate. The farcical, old-home boy characters are surpassed only by the likes of Judge Kenneth Starr who abandoned any hope of finding evidence of financial misdeeds in the Whitewater Property transaction and who latched on to any and all salacious rumours and beauty-parlour gossip as "factual evidence".
It is an amazing story of an attempted political lynching that defied all the norms of conventional behaviour and rule of law in a democracy.
The FBI's and the members of Ken Starr's staff used Gestapo-like tactics including leaked memos, innuendo and wrongful imprisonment of members of the Clinton's circle of friends.
What is scary is that Starr and his billionaire backers almost succeeded.
A film to keep for the grand-children.

The most enjoyable part of this DVD is most probably the special features section featuring none other than Bill Clinton! In this special extra, Clinton gives a very interesting account of American history from its early years to the present in order to contextualise the whole Clinton war with the media. His lecture style delivery is worthy of being awarded the doctorate status. Clinton also delivers a small apology of his involvement in extra marital affairs, but one doubts whether this is sincere. But, in the end, who really cares when this is all set in an American context. One can see that this subject is too American, hence the focus of the movie is the same. So, be warned, if you're looking for global snap shots, you're likely to be dissapointed.

As a former student of US Politics, I was naturally interested in this DVD which examines the downfall of the Clinton Presidency. What is shocking is that Clinton fell from power even though the US was enjoying unprecedented economic well being and things were generally good in the post Cold War world. At least, that was the illusion. The American prosperity bubble burst well before 9/11. Clinton's impeachment is a case in point. The events that led to the former President's impeachment are explored in some detail in this DVD. The well known Kenneth Starr is portrayed as the evil conspirator out to destroy Clinton's presidency.
However, Clinton's infedility is a shameful episode in US Presidential history. This DVD can hardly undo the damage done to the image of the American Presidency prior to the beginning of the Bush 2 presidency. Nonetheless, it illustrates how the decline in morals in American society, which arguably had begun as early as the 50's or the 60's had collided with a very big brick wall by the end of the 90's.
