Representative democracies don't work. When only the corrupt and those willing to accept foreign bribes can get on the ballet, you are guaranteed a tyranny, eventually. If the average John Doe down the street can't get on the ballot then how can you ever get "freedom"? Answer: You can't, prepare for the slavery and oppression you voted for, and pray their only ambition is power and not cruelty.

Director David Gordon Green and screenwriter Peter Straughan sometimes stumble over this vast terrain of self-serving scoundrels (Trump trumps anything they can make up), but the laughs keep firing.

I don't want to analyze on weather or not this showed the true sides of politics, but I think the movie had a story to tell and I'm a fan of Bullock, so that kinda did it for me. *Recommendable

I'm not quite sure how to rate this film but did think the story was well told. I liked Bullock in this role, but the movie gave me a very strong "ick" feeling -- like I needed a shower after I was done watching. Sadly, I think the movie does accurately portray the corrupt, deceitful, do-anything-to-win nature of politics not only in Bolivia but also in the US: a profession dominated by narcissists, psychopaths, and scum who are driven only by self-interest at the expense of all others.

What's the point of this, exactly? What are we supposed to be hoping happens? Do we root for the dude Bullock's working for? Are we supposed to be hoping he wins? Or is it just that we're supposed to be watching Bullock work, and the movie's trying to be a docudrama about campaign strategists? Is Bullock supposed to be a good campaign strategist, or a fallen one who's supposed to be trying to become good again? Do we--ah, you know what, the hell with it. Never mind.

Sandra Bullock go down to Bolivia to give the election movie a different flavor. But in all honesty, elections are the same just about everywhere. Dirty tactics and lying as much as possible. So in that regard this is nothing new. Still the sleaze bag element becomes enjoyable whenever Billy Bob Thornton pops up handling the campaign of the rival candidate. And that was enough to get me through Our Brand Is Crisis (2015) without feeling board.

Slow to start, Our Brand is Crisis eventually picks up to deliver a balanced mix of slapstick, wit and drama. Bullock does a great job throughout the film with support from Thornton and Almeida, but the rest of the cast feels off. Unfortunately the ending is a let-down, sacrificing the film's character build-up and sense of fun, to blatantly present a moral superior-ism that feels completely out of place.

Am I supposed to feel sorry for Bullock's character, a hired gun who helps assholes get elected who have the potential to completely rape their native lands and sell out their own people for power and money where the only winner is developed countries like the US? Does it help if she has phobias and is chronically depressive? No, fuck her and her bullshit pseudo-catharsis. And fuck this movie for trying, albeit ever so ineffectively, to get me to feel empathy for her.

A well-made political process film with a shifting tone so unclear that it might have fallen apart if not for Bullock's charisma holding the whole thing together.

Our Brand Is Crisis is very loosely based on a true story--the 2002 Bolivian presidential election when famed political strategist James Carville helped get Gonzalo Sánchez de Lozada reelected to Bolivia's highest office. The real-life events did not have a happy ending: Bolivians tirelessly demonstrated against his rule, their discontent culminating in an October 2003 standoff between government troops and protestors. Sixty-seven people were killed. Lozada resigned and went into exile in the

I love behind-the-scenes-of-politics stories, and enjoy a Sandra Bullock flick, but this was a major letdown. Not effective enough comedy, drama, or satire. Plus, I can't help but blame Clooney for the ending where she walks into a violent protest and joins a political action network. Anyway, I'm off to rewatch In The Loop and Thank You For Smoking.

OK, the trailer looked bad bordering on awful (they actually changed the two worst parts of it for the film itself), the weekend box was crap and the reviews stunk, but the title was enigmatic enough to get me to buy a ticket (blushing as I purchased it) just to see what was up with it. It was obviously a political movie (about politics in Bolivia, duh), but my hopes for unbiased substance were dashed when I noticed one of the exec. producers was George Clooney. I almost got up then and there ex [Full Review]

As a star vehicle for Sandra Bullock and a film that wants to give you a behind-the-scenes look at the way a political campaign is run, David Gordon Green's Our Brand is Crisis is a success. It's not quite sharp or dark enough to be anything more than a distraction - this isn't going to open many eyes or shock a great number of viewers - but that's better than a movie with this premise could have been. It's not dull, it's got interesting ideas, and it has pretty solid acting. [Full Review]
