Nineties Fever

The War RoomAs a kind of respite from the suffocating second Bush era, I rented “The War Room” the other night. This documentary of the 1992 Clinton campaign, shot by the legendary husband-wife directing team of D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus, is still remarkably good, the kind of film that continues to stoke fires of optimism and excitement with each viewing. Is it in bad taste to get nostalgiac for the early nineties already?
