  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
The story of The Hunting Of The President is brought to the screen in this political documentary of the events leading up to the impeachment of former President Bill Clinton. Narrated by Morgan Freeman, this film includes news clips, interviews and taped confessions from some of the key players over the tumultuous 10 years leading to his trial. (Danny Richelieu)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture is typical of documentaries, featuring various film formats resulting in varying image quality. The interview segments are incredibly sharp and detailed, but supporting archival footage can appear downright poor, with blurry images, plenty of source element artifacts, and poor color fidelity. Still, the mediocre picture quality is to be expected and is adequate in delivering the visuals of the subject matter. (Suzanne Hodges)
