As we approach the 2016 presidential election, the Hammer Museum offers a variety of election-themed talks and screenings. Learn more about our Election Fever programming. 

When disillusioned, suicidal incumbent senator Jay Bulworth takes out a hit on himself, he drops the political platitudes and starts telling the American people what he really thinks on the campaign trail. Written and directed by and starring Warren Beatty, Bulworth embraces a hedonistic, no-holds-barred approach to politics that is both funny and insightful, a “cry of frustrated comic rage” (Roger Ebert) fitting for our current political moment. (1998, dir. Warren Beatty, 102 min.)
