Documentary Film Of The Day - Street Fight...


If you like political theater, you will like this movie. It deals with the Newark, NJ mayoral race between Cory Booker, an idealistic newcomer, and Sharpe James, the charismatic incumbent. This movie has it all: dirty tricks, intimidation, lies, and smears - everything we've come to expect from American politics, but on a very local scale. I highly recommend this one. You can read more about it HERE.

Thanks for the tip. This sounds good--I'm a big fan of bare knuckles clout politics. As the late Mayor Daley said:

"Politics ain't beanbag."

I don't know what that guy is saying but he sure looks serious!

I loved this movie as well. I expect we'll see more of Booker in the future.
