Bob Roberts (1992)

Tim Robbins directs himself, Alan Rickman and Giancarlo Esposito in this star-studded mockumentary following a Neo-conservative folk singer turned political candidate.

Very on-target leftie attack on the right wing political future of North America. Bitter but never stretches reality. Robbins is excellent as the enigmatic bastard-in-waiting. The gangly character actor really had a fantastic run of lead roles in the early Nineties. A forgotten gem.
