Bulworth in the shadow of 2016 Presidential Election

In the shadow of Donald Trump and the 2016 Presidential Campaign, Bulworth and the virtues and vices of being candid with the American public has gained new relevance.

Warren Beatty explores the concept of candor on the campaign trail, and some politicians this cycle has used this approach to their benefit - but what is the difference between candor and the truth? Honesty and being frank? I wrote a review on Bulworth, but also about political bravery.

What do you guys think?


The difference between true candor and the carefully manicured performance of what people might swallow as candor is the downfall of a nation in which people are too lazy to read and too selfish to care.
