|Directed by||Stefan Forbes|
Lee Atwater was a blues-playing rogue who led the Republican party to historic victories, helped make liberal a dirty word, and transformed the way America elects our Presidents. In eye-opening interviews with friends and foes alike, Boogie Man reveals Atwater's crucial role in the victories of President Reagan and both Presidents Bush and his influence on his then-protégé Karl Rove. To Democrats, Atwater was a remorseless political assassin dubbed by one Congresswoman as "the most evil man in America." But he remains a hero to many Republicans for his irreverent sense of humor, his deep understanding of the American heartland, and his unapologetic vision of politics as war.
