Sometimes horrifying, often hilarious, A Perfect Candidate is a twisted journey into the underbelly of American politics. In 1994 former Marine Oliver North re-emerged from the Iran-Contra scandal to run for the U.S Senate. In the hotly contested race between North and incumbent Chuck Robb - who played Charlie Brown to Ollie's Elvis -- filmmakers R.J. Cutler and David Van Taylor were granted astonishing access to the back room games played by the candidates, their handlers, and the press. A revealing, chilling and darkly funny look into the modern American political process.


"Absolutely fascinating!"- Gene Siskel


"The best American documentary since Hoop Dreams...invigorating, entertaining & essential!"
