Leon Neyfakh's Dream Double Feature
Elections have consequences. So do campaigns. In these two films, we get to see the elemental rush of competition that fuels all political warfare. Lifting the hood on the machinery of ambition and charisma, Election and Journeys With George are both, in their own ways, perfect complements to the first season of the Fiasco podcast, which tells the story of the 2000 election and the Florida recount.
