'Boogie Man' follows the life of Lee Atwater, the man who rocketed to the top of the republican party and created their playbook of cultural division, racism, and dirty tricks to secure victories for Ronald Reagan, George HW Bush, and George W Bush. Karl Rove and Tucker Eskew (currently working for the McCain campaign) were two of his protégés. But Atwater was more than a hatchet man, who was filled with contradictions and died of brain cancer when he was 41.
In the end Atwater, who prided himself as the man behind the curtain too clever to leave any trace of his nefarious political operations, has left his fingerprints all over the American political system. And we are the worse for it, as the country remains paralyzed in a cycle of negative politics and chained to the visceral issues that continue to undermine American democracy. It's the undeniable truth that makes Boogie Man such a sobering and timely film.
I watched it last night on PBS , disturbing documentary that shows a total parallel to todays whole dirty tricks philosophy.

“Fascinating!” - Ella Taylor, LA Weekly Critic’s Pick
“An excellent and frightening documentary” - Gerald Peary, Boston Phoenix
“Immensely relevant, compelling…Honestly, every adult in America should see it before casting another vote.” - Elizabeth Weitzman, NY Daily News
“Stefan Forbes’ incisive portrait of the late, infamous Republican consultant is a chronicle of how the culture war took over American politics. As such, it could scarcely be more timely…terrific!” - Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
“A compelling portrait of one of the great con men of modern American politics…bracing…worth watching…why are we so easily manipulated into voting our fears?” - Patrick Goldstein, LA Times
