Man, I cannot believe he let the camera crew stay with him throughout the scandal & campaign! I feel so bad for his wife. That said, this whole scandal thing is so overwrought and absurd. She sexted another adult...didn't even have sex with another adult...just texted them. Of course, then he lied about it and kept it up after saying he would stop, so in that I could see why people would be perturbed. But he was a good representative of his constituents. Anyway, about the movie...it was very well paced and they had extraordinary access and candor from people involved. And it showed what it's like to be behind-the-scenes of a dysfunctional campaign in the midst of a meltdown. I was fascinated throughout. It's definitely worth $3 to rent.
Saw this right before he and Huma split and the tension between them is so thick you could cut it. Anthony bares all in a classic tale of incouragable vanity and reminds us there's such a thing as too much honesty. I noticed a political parallel between Anthony's openness and Alexander Hamilton's Reynolds Pamphlet.

Anthony Weiner...a great congressman, a horrible husband, but would be a cool corny homeboy to hang with.
