Movie Reviews

This is a must see before the elections
Kristina Severance | 09/30/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I saw this at the Jackson Hole Film Festival and am so glad I saw it - it's the best inside look at what needs to be accomplished by a community in order to vote ... and how vulnerable the election process and results really are. See this film and take action in your community - it's worth it."
Excellent, Inside View
Jazzpooch | Philadelphia, PA | 09/30/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Almost all political movies show the "political" side of politics, which is so distant from most of us. "By the People," shows a view of politics as it really is. Not glamorous, not exciting every minute, but a day to day carrying out of small tasks. This is a movie about people -- real people -- whose job it is to make an election work. It is a behind the scenes view of the elements that make it possible for each of us to have a say in our democracy. You will not see Robert Redford in "By the People," but you might see someone just like your next door neighbor. A wonderful, interesting film."
Great Documentary

"BY THE PEOPLE is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. It's funny, exciting, and illuminating. If you wonder if your vote means anything, if you care about the electoral process in America, see this strictly non-partisan film. It should be required viewing for all citizens.
Fantastic film

"By the People opened my eyes to how chaotic the election process is in this country and how heavily it relies on volunteers to make it work. I thought the film was fantastic both in how it involved its audience in the moment-by-moment decisions of running an election and in how it lets its inspiring, colorful characters lead us through the process. I highly recommend this film!!!"
