Shockingly sleep inducing,because i don't usually fall asleep on political celluloid,the promotion of one spurious party over the other spurious party,is the reason why this celluloid refuses to expose the fact that the popular votes (aka the votes of peasants and uppity average people) don't count in real life no matter what your race is.Only the electoral votes (aka the votes of Congress) in real life counts aka determines every presidential selection,not election,that the USA has ever had so far in real life and unfortunately always will.This will ''CHANGE'' only if USA citizens in real life REPENT,turn from their wicked ways,and get the $ out of politics,but i digress.

A film about a story we think we know...
The important event was(and still is) apathy of the electorate.
A perfect illustration of Oscar Wilde's comment that "Democracy is a form of government in which the people can vote for the government they deserve..."

A strong reminder that elections have consequences. It's hard to imagine how all of our lives would have been different if this election had been decided the other way.

Political affiliation aside, I truely believe that Al Gore won the 2000 presidential election. I also believe that as long as people embrace the false belief that they live in a democratic society they deserve what they get.

Well, we all know how it ends, but some of the inside details revealed in this film make it completely worthwhile.
