Review:

Billed first as the lurid downfall of a president and then as the overreaching of a politically motivated prosecutor, this unprecedented look into heretofore sacrosanct federal grand jury proceedings and the precursor to Congressional impeachment hearings is fascinating on many levels both prurient and historical. The four-hour exchange between the first president ever to appear before a sitting grand jury is at times riveting and infuriating, as President Clinton seeks to split legal hairs over the definition of sex and the word is and as the prosecutors relentless probe the president over his affair with former intern Monica Lewinsky. Clinton's chief inquisitor, Kenneth Starr, appears off camera only briefly to question the president, and the tension between them is palpable on the president's face. As much debate as it may provoke now, in years to come the real worth of this videotaped document is in what it means to the future of due process and the American system of government. --Robert Lane
