    A good documentary uses judicious editing to make an important addition to your knowledge of a subject, and Mitt does so in a big way.

    This is neither an indictment nor an endorsement but simply a refreshing departure from the combative tone of contemporary politics and political coverage.

    Mitt humanizes a man who was never nearly as good with his target audience as he was with his family.

    Although the access is intimate, what emerges is not particularly surprising.

    How ironic to realise that the greatest Mitt Romney campaign ad should arrive too late to save him.

    Although Whiteley's unrestricted there-ness effortlessly yields an avuncular striver... it means little when the viewpoint is so hermetic.

    Interesting documentary that manages to humanize a politician who, somehow, never managed to connect with the voters. The film is surprising because it demonstrates how closely the candidate was connected to his family throughout what must have been a very challenging and stressful experience. This film is a great companion to Double Down by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann. Expand
