The Reagan Show
The Reagan Show is an all-archival documentary about the original performer-presidents role of a lifetime.
Teasing apart the spectacle at the heart of finger-on-the-button global diplomacy, the film follows Ronald Reagans rivalry with charismatic Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, tracing how the communicator-in-chief uses his public relations chops to overcome Soviet mistrust, the objections of a skeptical press corps and the looming threat of World War III.

Chock full of wit and political irony, and told solely through 1980s network news and videotapes created by the Reagan administration itself, the film explores Reagans made-for-TV approach to politics as he faced down the United States greatest rival.
