Silver City

4

Who wants an idiot running for power? Not indie director John Sayles, whose thoughtful political satire hit US box-offices just as the country was preparing to, um, re-elect George W Bush. Inarticulate would-be governor Dickie Pilager is pure Dubya, but Sayles' intelligently woven tale of corruption and greed succeeds on its own merits. Memorable performances from Danny Huston and Richard Dreyfuss, razor-sharp dialogue and frank interviews in the extras give Silver City a punch as a powerful political protest.
