Can Mr. Smith Get to Washington Anymore? – one of the best documentary features at the Milwaukee International Film Festival!  Following the 2004 Missouri Democratic primary to replace  retiring 28-year veteran and former House Majority Leader Dick Gephardt.  The documentary shadows little known Jeff Smith, a 29 year old part-time political science instructor at Wash U.  Travel along this grass roots campaign as they face their biggest opponent Russ Carnahan to see if the little guy stands a chance. 

 Even if you’re not a fan of the policital process this movie is a must see!   A true underdog story.

Maxed Out – a look at the American credit industry and how it affects us.  It’s really disturbing to see how the credit industry solicits their “biggest money makers” as well as looking at the national debt.  A must see for anyone who has ever taken out a loan or has gotten a credit card.
