Bulworth (1998)

Directed by Warren Beatty

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.

What if The Beastie Boys remade Sidney Lumet's Network? Unpleasant viewing all round, and nobody can convince me that my discomfort was deliberate.
