Part of the Tim Robbins Weekend
In 1992, Vincent Canby, reviewing the film for the New York Times, wrote, “ ‘BOB ROBERTS,’ written and directed by Tim Robbins who also plays the title role, is a very funny, sometimes prescient satire of American politics, and of the comparatively small, voting portion of the electorate that makes a Bob Roberts phenomenon possible. Recent events haven't completely overtaken the movie, but they do indicate just how wild a satire must be these days to remain on the cutting edge of the outrageous.” One could argue that the film has turned out to be far more prescient and far less far-fetched than it appeared to Mr. Canby in 1992. The film stars Tim Robbins, Giancarlo Esposito, Gore Vidal, Ray Wise, Alan Rickman, David Strathairn and James Spader.
