    As Clinton becomes more of a celebrity, Pennebaker must use wide-angle shots from a distance, rushed shots taken while surrounded by members of the media, or clips from television when he wants to show Clinton. Although this could be seen as a creatively confining, Pennebaker uses the images representative of Clinton’s celebrity in juxtaposition with scenes of George and James from within the campaign offices to develop a sense of intimacy with James and George. The cutting between the public and private spheres of the campaign reveals to the viewer the inner complexities that exist within a political machine. The aforementioned zoom used on Clinton’s face was employed throughout the film on other characters.
