Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 09/26/2008
"If you want to hear juicy inside tales of the scams devised by Lee Atwater, the right-wing visionary of media-age dirty tricks, you'll find loads of them in BOOGIE MAN." -- Grade: B+
Los Angeles Times - 10/03/2008
"[I]t's a hugely entertaining, efficiently crafted documentary about a ruthless, if undeniably clever, American political force....Director-cinematographer-editor Stefan Forbes rivetingly, often chillingly, frames our country's not-so-distant political past while informing its polarized present."
Chicago Sun-Times - 11/05/2008
"BOOGIE MAN: THE LEE ATWATER STORY, a remarkable documentary directed by Stefan Forbes, uses interviews with Atwater's targets and, especially, his old comrades, to paint a remarkable portrait of Atwater..."

Product Description:

He was the political genius behind the Republican Party's resurgence in the 1980s and '90s, helping to usher in a new era of dominance for the Grand Old Party. Along the way Lee Atwater took under his wing such up-and-comers as Karl Rove and George W. Bush. Always controversial, Atwater's strategies in the political arena didn't slink away from using rumors, innuendos, and outright lies to win--most famously in the Willie Horton commercials that doomed Michael Dukakis in the 1988 presidential campaign. This documentary examines Atwater, his eccentric personality, and profound influence on America.
