Last Man Standing
POV Season 17
Feature Film | 07/20/2004 | 90 Mins

Asking what the politics are that launched George W. Bush to national office, award-winning filmmaker Paul Stekler takes his camera to Texas for a lively, behind-the-scenes look at a pair of 2002 elections — one for state representative in a district that includes Lyndon Johnson’s hometown, and a polarizing race for governor. Prominent Texans, including Bush strategist Karl Rove, former Governor Ann Richards, Clinton appointees Henry Cisneros and Paul Begala, and writer Molly Ivins shed light on the changing political landscape. In the end, Last Man Standing: Politics — Texas Style shows how politics in Texas may have become the blueprint for Washington. A POV 2004 Election Issue Special.
