To an extent we wouldn't have imagined possible, this intelligent, nuanced doc has complicated our feelings about its subject, Ralph Nader (if not necessarily about the knuckleheads who voted for him in swing states in 2000). Even more remarkably, it did so despite copious input from two of Nader's smartest, angriest, most articulate critics, sociologist Todd Gitlin and journalist Eric Alterman, many of whose complaints against him we're still willing to concede.
Anything but a hagiography, Unreasonable reveals its subject to be a rigid, puritanical, ostensibly asexual, workaholic freak, but also shows how the very traits that made him a dangerous spoiler were what enabled him to realize unfathomable amounts of good for American society as an anticorporate muckraker.
