  1. Recent reporting makes for interesting consideration of the events this film depicts. For what it’s worth, according to The Atlantic, it seems Bush Sr.’s campaign manager Atwater confessed to setting up that whole Bimini fiasco to tank Hart’s campaign. Most of the people who’d know are dead… but a deathbed confession’s a deathbed confession. It is what it is, but it’s interesting to imagine how it all would have turned out.
