I've mentioned this movie before but, since some kind soul found a high-def version, I'm watching it again.
Bob Roberts is about a racist, rich, piece of shit senatorial candidate played by Tim Robbins. He's Trump, if Trump were smart. Also it came out in 1992. NINETEEN NINETY TWO.
This movie is prescient as fuck.
Jack Black basically plays your standard alt-righter.
Alan Rickman is Steve Bannon.
Ray Wise is Reince Priebus AND Kelly-Anne Conway.
Gore Vidal is Hillary Clinton.
Giancarlo Esposito is uh, the Journalism Twitter Brigade (Louise Mensch, Claude Taylor, etc).
If anyone asks what the movie will be like in a decade. It'll be this, but worse. Also, you should watch it because it may have one of the best casts is in the history of film. Here's some more of it:
Eva Amurri Martino (as a child!) (weird) (you've seen her nude)
Seriously, it's basically perfect. I'd say the folk-singing hurts the movie, but honestly the lyrics are so brilliant it's depressing.
