Still relevant today. Watch this and then watch House of Cards.

I'd say watch this and then watch Lincoln, to get an understanding that this same sort of maneuvering and showmanship dominates even the country's best.

There are some beautiful scenes in this wonderfully shot, lit, and designed film. However, I could not find any empathy, sympathy, or compassion for Mr. Smith. He just appeared to be a naive man-child, wrapped up in slogans and national myths.
