WEINER ★★★★

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | FILM -

Di­rected by Josh Krieg­man, El­yse Stein­berg US con­gress­man An­thony Weiner ought to have cho­sen his pas­times more care­fully. Many of his col­leagues have en­gaged in more se­ri­ous in­frac­tions than tex­ting pic­tures of an erec­tion in un­der­pants, but Weiner’s name en­sured that his sex­ting antics would launch a thou­sand head­lines. This su­perb doc­u­men­tary points up the politi­cian’s baf­fling, un­stop­pable ad­dic­tion to the lime­light. Why has he granted such ac­cess? Who knows? Just savour it.
