Call this taking one for the team: A few of us caught a preview screening of State Legislature
, the new documentary by Frederick Wiseman, which recounts his exhaustive coverage of the 2004 session of the Idaho Legislature.
At four hours long, it's a commitment. But for aficionados of Idaho politics, there's nothing finer.
Favorite scenes: Senate Majority Leader Bart Davis tearing into Laird Maxwell; Dan Popkey criticizing his own paper's "bad editorial judgment," and certain lawmakers showing how the years have actually been very, very kind.
