On the movie «The Ides of March» (2011)

On the movie «The Ides of March» (2011)
This movie reveals the truth on Politics, both on issues relating to the candidates, as well as on their campaigns and staff!
The first half, at least, of the film, realistically presents the way things run on current politics and the role that massive media play, how political marketing is over-ruling substantive political issues of a debate and how political cynicism prevails between candidates and their staff, even when they are coming from the same Party during the primaries' election for granting the candidature to lead a country.
The same modus vivendi in politics is observed in any modern liberal democracy, including Greece and Cyprus, though in a much higher degree of unorganized, populist and clumsy way!
