Election (1999)

 Rated R for language, but hey, we’re just quoting the movie, okee?

It’s Election Week in the U.S., so here’s an appropriate movie to review. The 38th Next 100 Project podcast takes a good look at the American horror show that finally ends on November 8th (or does it, really?), but our real focus is of course on Reese Witherspoon and Matthew Broderick. Alexander Payne’s comic direction is at its peak. Caffeine up with some Sparkplug Coffee, then pound this podcast into your earholes!
