Let’s keep up this documentary trend!
- Last Party 2000 (US, 2001): a documentary featuring Philip Seymour Hoffman hitting the road and watching what’s going on in the months before the American elections of year 2000 (Al Gore vs. Bush). Many interesting things: seeing the film after seven years gave me the picture that is has been a loooong time ago and the world has really changed. People claiming that Al Gore is not a friend of the environment. Then you see a Michael Moore strongly supporting Ralph Nader, the independent candidate. Still about Moore: he has good points in his films, but in his later productions it seems to me he has become more and more biased as money flows more and more in his pockets. It’s nice to see Hoffman leading this documentary unpretentiously, that is, just trying to understand why things are going so crazy on the other side of the Ocean.
