Weiner

  • Directors: Josh Kriegman, Elyse Steinberg
  • Genre: Documentary
  • Rating: R
  • Running Time: 96 min.

With unrestricted access to Anthony Weiner’s New York City mayoral campaign, this film reveals the human story behind the scenes of a high-profile political scandal as it unfolds, and offers an unfiltered look at how much today’s politics is driven by an appetite for spectacle.

"Running a taut 97 minutes, it's the must-see nonfiction film of the year."
- Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Easily escapes the fading headlines about a botched campaign to become an enduring portrait of a political animal caught in a technological trap."
- Matthew Lickona, San Diego Reader
"Weiner is a thorough examination of modern politics, the 24-hour news cycle and the grind of the campaign trail."
- Adam Graham, Detroit News
"The movie goes from being interesting to riveting, from "Yes, this is quite good" to you-cannot-leave-your-seat-and-don't-even-want-to-blink."
- Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Absolutely fascinating, with nearly unlimited and almost unbearably close access. This is the political documentary you never thought you'd actually see."
- Rafer Guzman, Newsday
"Weiner, an extraordinary documentary feature about the disgraced New York politician Anthony Weiner, has it all -- the surreal spectacle of contemporary retail politics, the sizzle of media madness and the mysteries of psychodrama."
- Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"This film doesn't lionize Weiner or justify anything he did. What it does is capture the frenzy of politics, the iron-clad egos of politicians, and the failure of the media to cover the parts of campaigning and government that actually matter."
- Noel Murray, AV Club
