It’s interesting to rewatch a movie you loved as a small child and haven’t seen in a decade. You inevitably mythologize the movie in your mind, and seeing which stuff was really there and what were imagined by you is really interesting; it of course can be somewhat disappointing.

Not really the case with “Election”. It seems a bit underperformed at least nowadays (it was always on TV when I was 7.) Pity, since it’s a good movie. Better than “American Beauty” or “Heathers” I think, to mention two movies that it brings to mind. It perfectly illustrates that feeling of schadenfreude that you feel when an overachiever fails, a feeling that I unfortunately know well.
