Top 10 election movies

There’s nothing like an election to create drama and tension. To get you in the mood for the upcoming New Zealand elections, James Croot offers a compilation of 10 of the best election movies.

1. Bob Roberts
One of the funniest mockumentaries not to be made by Christopher Guest (This is Spinal Tap), this 1992 film follows the fortunes of a corrupt right-wing folksinger and his crooked campaign for the US Senate. It features music videos, timeless slogans (”the times they are a-changin’ back”) and career-defining performances from Tim Robbins and Alan Rickman.

2. All the Presidents Men
