Michael Ritchie
The Candidate
1972

The callow son of a legendary politician is lured into running for the U.S. Senate. He soon realizes that he is in over his head and sinking deeper at every stop on the campaign trail. Director Ritchie uses biting humor and an incredible eye for detail to paint a decidedly unromantic and all-too-accurate picture of politics in the TV Age. Robert Redford is excellent as the candidate who wants your vote, but can't really tell you why he should have it.
