The juicy, exciting, and revelatory new documentary about Anthony Weiner’s 2013 campaign for mayor of New York City in the wake of the scandal that torpedoed his political career. The dizzying rush of “Weiner” is that the phenomenon it captures — a political culture in which candidates are round-the-clock addicts of image control — becomes, by the end, a powerful premonition of the current presidential campaign. The achievement of “Weiner” is that the movie shows us what that looks like — and the crushing toll it takes not just on democracy, but on reality. Winner of the 2016 Sundance Grand Jury Prize for U.S. Documentary.
