Candidate (The)

Robert Redford plays an idealistic public interest lawyer who is recruited by Democratic Party backers as their Senatorial candidate to run in a campaign against the popular incumbent. His condition in accepting the candidacy is that he maintain his integrity by saying what he really believes. Peter Boyle, his campaign manager, agrees to this condition but slips Redford a piece of paper with a stipulation... "you lose". What happens from there is Redford's stark lesson in the reality of political campaigning and the surprises and failed promises that reveal themselves along the way. This film received an Academy Award for Best Screenplay.

Manchurian Candidate (the)

John Frankenheimer's 1962 Manchurian Candidate is a classic political satire that needed no remake. But director Jonathan Demme creates a mesmerizing mind-teaser from the original 1959 novel. This time, the menace is mind-control that powerful corporations exert in the Halliburton-Tyco-Enron era. With an assassin holed up at a political convention, the climax couldn't be timelier.

Denzel Washington has Sinatra's 1962 role of Ben Marco, who this time is a Gulf War veteran haunted by combat nightmares, and worried that New York congressman Raymond Shaw (Schreiber), a heroic sergeant from his platoon, might in fact be a pawn, a sleeper whom mind-controllers want in the White House. When Raymond's senator mother, Eleanor Shaw (Streep), ramrods Raymond in as the vice-presidential nominee, tension mounts.

All hell breaks loose as Demme catches the audience in a vise of churning suspense and corrosive wit. And in an odd twist, this riveting film also has an upbeat ending that keep it in the shadow of its predecessor.
