  • Nolan Barth's rating of the film A Perfect Candidate

    This is definitely an underrated film, I'm actually surprised this isn't talked about more often. I found this to be an entertaining and revealing documentary. With such a dry subject matter I was incredibly impressed that they managed to keep my attention for so long! This is a very well done and profound documentary. In many ways A Perfect Candidate feels even more relevant in today's day and age.
