DVD de la soir: Election (1999).


The best part of this movie is that it lets you come to your own conclusions rather than patronize you with one dimensional characters and unrealistic motivations. In fact it makes it rather difficult to know who is the "good guy" and who is the "bad guy". Gather a handful of people with deep goals and desires that have meaning only to themselves, shake vigorously and let the sympathies fall where thay may. In some ways it reminds me of my favorite film of 1998, Happiness. Election has the same loss of sympathetic stability, but in a much more tame presentation.
