Goofs

To emphasize the point of the problematic German author of the quote provided to Pat, some Mariachis sing at his hotel door. This is the 3rd verse of the 'Deutschlandlied', the national anthem of the Federal Republic of Germany. The notorious 1st verse ("Deutschland, Deutschland über alles") favored in the 3rd Reich would have been more fitting to the quote's author. See more »

Quotes

Jane: "It may be possible to hold power based on guns; it is far better to win the heart of the nation".
Pat Candy: That's nice.

Bolivia Brand Crisis
30 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

8.1 of 10. Not quite as enjoyable as the 2005 documentary that it's named after, but definitely adds to the story and makes it more exciting and funnier for those not into political documentaries.

It also provides a better look at Bolivia. Much of the documentary is stuck inside or looking at the politicians when they occasionally step outside. Here, the film explores the country and goes where the documentary, possibly for safety reasons, never treaded.

The acting and casting is surprisingly good. Not the people you'd expect for the main roles, yet they fit in extraordinarily well.

Not the best politically natured film of the year (that goes to Big Short), but definitely the best and most insightful film on modern election politics and "democracy".
