Poster for Bulworth

A suicidally disillusioned liberal politician puts a contract out on himself and takes the opportunity to be bluntly honest with his voters by affecting the rhythms and speech of hip-hop music and culture in this '90s comedy from the great Warren Beatty.

Bulworth is not a perfect movie, nor could it be. It's too messy and takes too many risks.

Beatty has fashioned a hilarious morality tale that delivers a surprisingly potent, angry message beneath the laughs.

(Beatty delivers) what is possibly his best film and certainly his funniest and liveliest.

(Beatty's) political satire is bold, merciless and frequently very funny, and his performance is just plain fearless.

What lifts Bulworth above its lapses, including a muddled ending, is Beatty’s passion to invigorate audiences with a taste for the truth.
