Arkansas Times Film Series: “The War Room”

By Stephanie Smittle

TUESDAY 12/17. Riverdale 10 Cinema. 7 p.m. $9.

George Stephanopoulos and James Carville in The War Room by IMDB

For a few decades now, reckoning with the Clinton legacy has been a sort of prerequisite for living in Arkansas — it’s the sort of thing folks elsewhere ask Arkansans about first, especially if they have little other Arkansas knowledge with which to fuel small talk. Here, in this 1993 film, directors Chris Hegedus and D.A. Pennebaker grapple with that legacy on the big screen, documenting some of the very same stories we here at the Arkansas Times reported on during the 1990s — specifically, how James Carville and George Stephanopoulos engineered Clinton’s winning campaign for the presidency in 1992. Filmed primarily in Pulaski County, the film features some notably recognizable spots in Little Rock, including the Arkansas Gazette building at 112 W.  Third St. and the Old State House. “The War Room” caps off the 2019 Arkansas Times Film Series, curated by Omaya Jones.
