“8.1 of 10. Not quite as enjoyable as the 2005 documentary that itu0026#39;s named after, but definitely adds to the story and makes it more exciting and funnier for those not into political documentaries.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIt 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.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe acting and casting is surprisingly good. Not the people youu0026#39;d expect for the main roles, yet they fit in extraordinarily well.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eNot 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 u0026quot;democracyu0026quot;.”
