I never thought I'd see the day when a piece of crap like Head of State would be in the same poll with the likes of Citizen Kane.

3. Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004)
4. Wag the Dog (1997)
5. Primary Colors (1998)
6. All the King's Men (1949)
7. Election (1999)
8. The Candidate (1972)
9. Dave (1993)
10. The Manchurian Candidate (1962)

I agree. What about Seven Days in May? What about JFK?

I picked Citizen Kane, and "none". I haven't seem most of the movies on the list, and I can't stand most politicians.

How does Mr. Smith have nearly 3x the number of votes as Citizen Kane?

Because it's 3 x as much fun (in my opinion).

I've seen both several times each and while both are excellent films, MR. SMITH is simply a more fun film to watch. Jimmy Stewart is excellent and the film has a supporting cast that is just delightful.

SMITH also has some comedy mixed in it which I think audiences (in general) appreciate more than an out and out drama.

I always thought KANE appealed more to film scholars and the like more than regular audiences.

I went with A Face in the Crowd. This really needs a DVD release.
