Return to the War Room

A new release of The War Room, the 1993 classic documentary on Bill Clinton's presidential campaign, is out today with added bonus features.

Dave Weigel: "We get a new, full movie, Return to the War Room, which re-interviews the first movie's subjects (not Bill Clinton). It's interesting to see the spoils of victory -- these people have put together comfortable Washington/New York axis-of-power lives -- but apart from some good new anecdotes, it's not overly involving. The better stuff comes when Hegedus and Pennebaker talk at length about the film and reveal how they made it. The two big takeaways: They got lucky, and probably no one will ever get this lucky again."
