Not Rated, 1 hour 51 Minutes
Starring: Richard Gere, Julie Christie and Gene Hackman
A movie that seems to be hitting the nail on the head when it comes to politics and the way politicians win their votes. However, towards the end Gere gets sentimental about one case that was twisted and fights for the truth and for the right of one man. A little on the boring side if you ask me. I would give it a C, but Gere is an excellent actor even in this movie.
Here is what the cover has to say:
"Power" directed by Sidney Lumet ("Network," "Prince of the City") depicts how calculated and dehumanized the political process has become. The film shows the maneuverings of political candidates as they try to get elected, and the people hired to sell them to the public - the media consultants.
Deaths are staged, people hurt, all for the sake of political power
The man behind all of it is almost richer then the men paying him
The difference is that he knows what to do next for them to win
Until he runs into a problem
