AN UNREASONABLE MAN: the new Ralph Nader documentary.

Curious if anyone's seen this lately in theaters or on pay-per-view?

It covers Nader's career from his auto safety reforms to the Presidential campaigns--particularly 2000.  And, since it's balanced and lays out a case for the 2000 run not being THE cause of Gore's loss (something the Democratic Party has used as a propaganda tool ever since), some people are likely to be infuriated all over again.

Worth seeing nonetheless as a study in whether or not one can afford to be idealistic and unchanging in a consensus, compromising society--and if that idealism may do more harm than good (as well as bringing up the question of whether Nader's overall legacy will be overshadowed by his Presidential runs).
