Austin Chronicle: Just in Time for Nader '08
 
Read Full Review Here

An unavoidable aspect of An Unreasonable Man is the sense the viewer gets of being subjected too soon to perspective on a prophet as plagues are still circulating. In other words, it could be argued that Ralph Nader deserved to burn a lot longer than he has.

Henriette Mantel and Steve Skrovan, who met as stand-up comedians in the Eighties, maintain that they didn't set out to rescue the lawyer, consumer activist, Public Citizen, and Green Party presidential candidate from the stake, but their documentary does just that. Comprising interviews with allies and enemies, archival footage ranging from congressional hearings to car commercials, and a biography that was often the first thing to be sacrificed as Nader's story was pushed further to the fringe in 2000 and 2004, An Unreasonable Man contextualizes someone ahead of his time within two hours amid it.
