With Election, Payne announces himself as one of the keenest purveyors of the scattered pieces that once was an American morality.

An invigoratingly mordant comedy that proves that Alexander Payne's rambunctious debut, Citizen Ruth, was no fluke.

Alexander Payne is a director whose satire is omnidirectional. He doesn't choose an easy target and march on it. He stands in the middle of his story and attacks on all directions.
