OUR BRAND IS CRISIS (2015)
A comic, dramatic film based on a 2005 documentary of the same name which stars an excellent Sandra Bullock as an American political consultant who has been employed to help the flagging campaign of a former Bolivian President to regain the Presidency. The scenario details the inner workings of what it takes to get elected in today’s world and the manipulations and deceptions that take place along the way. This film which was directed by David Gordon Green from a screenplay by Peter Straughan is an excellent piece of filmmaking that is both informative while being quite entertaining. Fine support was supplied by Billy Bob Thornton, Ann Dowd, Anthony Mackie, Joaquin De Almeida and a stand out performance from newcomer Reynaldo Pacheco.
