      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Weiner uses sharp insight and untrammeled access to offer a portrait of a political and personal collapse that's as queasy as it is undeniably compelling.

      Shael Lands the message that leadership is not for everyone and we expect those in power to be powerful, admirable and in control of their basic decision making processes. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/26/23 Full Review Jru K Like watching a man trying to set himself on fire over and over again. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member Up there with "Icarus" as one of the best examples of Documentary Filmmakers striking gold with an unbelievable change of circumstance occurring mid-film. But getting lucky is only half of it. How you handle that twist is where the professionalism and brilliance of this movie shines. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review filippo v Il documentario usa uno stile vivace e movimentato per raccontare un episodio senza dubbio interessante. Dal film emergono temi e riflessioni mai superficiali e colpisce per il livello di profondità con la quale si è calato nelle elezioni neworkesi del 2013. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member It is unbelievably outstanding that this actually was something that occurred. Only nitpick is wince they are politicians they never truly open themselves Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member An insane story about the rise and stunning collapse of politician Richard Weiner. His story is incredibly unique and very very interesting. How he gave his authorization for this to be released is mind boggling. For most of the movie it looks like your typical good underdog story... before his life goes off the rails... and then sinks even further. Its definitely an amazing rollercoaster ride.

      Soraya Nadia McDonald Andscape It's a fabulously entertaining view from inside a political campaign, giving us a firsthand experience of all the weird, Good Wife-style maneuvering that takes place. Sep 26, 2017 Full Review Brian Lowry CNN.com What Weiner makes painfully clear is the collateral damage of Weiner's actions... To that extent, it's possible to share his politics and still see him as a fatally flawed vessel for them. Oct 25, 2016 Full Review Sara Michelle Fetters MovieFreak.com Weiner shows, without embellishment, without cinematic sleight of hand, that a person's worst enemy remains themselves. Rated: 3.5/4 Aug 9, 2016 Full Review Jordan Brooks Vague Visages Weiner is an unmissable documentary for anyone even tangentially interested in the political process. Aug 1, 2023 Full Review Kip Mooney College Movie Review One of the most fascinating, thought-provoking movies of the year. Rated: A- Aug 29, 2021 Full Review Dan Buffa KSDK News (St. Louis) A brutally honest look at politics... Nov 10, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews
