The Hunting of the President

Genre: Documentary; Director: Nickolas Perry, Harry Thomason; Runtime (in minutes): 89; MPAA Rating: Unrated; Distributor: Regent Entertainment

Left-leaning doc, The Hunting of the President, examines the ”vast right-wing conspiracy” that Hillary Clinton said was determined to bring down her husband. The film sorts through a cast of characters who allegedly have hidden agendas, but it would be more effective if it didn’t gloss over the other side – most glaringly, the president’s now legendary ”I did not have sexual relations with that woman” sound bite, as well as his impeachment by the House of Representatives. (No wonder Clinton, who speaks at the premiere in the DVD’s lone extra, likes the movie so much.)
