The Best Government the Money Can Buy

Posted by Ştefan Alexandrescu on March 15, 2012

This is a very interesting discussion with the filmmaker who directed the documentary The Best Government the Money Can Buy, which exposes the accaparation of power by lobbyists in Washington. After the film has been released in USA, the critics have acclaimed it and the specialist have appreciated it as being a close and scaring portrayal of all the major issues which it covers. In this interview, the film director explains the importance of knowing the facts for the American citizens.

Although it may seem of not so much important issue for citizens from other countries, I think it is worth as a case study for the mechanisms of corruption and understanding how USA are really ran.

Here you have a fragment of 15 minutes of discussion between the film director and an interviewer + the trailer

Casino Jack (2010)

Posted by Ştefan Alexandrescu on September 18, 2011

Director George Hickenlooper, not much known, but the author of some brilliant other movies, takes the true story of an American lobbyist which has managed to scam tens of millions of dollars and, through his story, he creates a portrait of American political scene which will make you understand how things work in America and how laws are made.

This docudrama is also one of the best parts for Kevin Spacey (the greatest since American Beauty – he also got a Golden Globe nomination for best actor). Funny, brilliant, excellent. Great script, great acting. A true masterpiece. A movie you will love to watch again and again. Definitely, a must see.

My rating: 8 / 10 (masterpiece)

Enjoy watching it!

Fair Game (2010)

Posted by Ştefan Alexandrescu on June 16, 2011

Director Doug Liman, not a particularly wanna-see director, has made a great job directind this high paced docudrama which received an award for best film in 2010 about civil liberties. If you want to see the true story on how Iraq war started, this is a movie to see. Based on the two books written by the two main characters, former CIA analyst experts, the picture follows the story of two people who tried to prevent a war which was based on no evidence and got heir lives destroyed for it. If you want to understand how political and economical agendas join hand to make a lot of profit out of war, this movie will definitely help you. In my opinion, it is the best political Hollywood thriller made since Syriana.

Academy Award winner Sean Penn and Academy Award Nominee Naomi Watts give life to an inspiring and true story of fighting for the truth and assuming all and any consequences for it. For “the Truth will set you free”.

My rating: 8 / 10 (masterpiece). A must see.

Enjoy watching it!
