In the case of "Weiner," the compulsively watchable new film about Anthony Weiner and the implosion of his 2013 New York mayoral run amid a revival of his sexting scandal, part of the answer is clear.Director Josh Kriegman once worked for Weiner, who was forced to resign his congressional seat in 2011 . Weiner clearly hoped that Kriegman and co-director Elyse Steinberg would be documenting an inspiring comeback. Watch Abedin's face as she stares at Weiner on the day the scandal breaks anew, disappointed and stunned, with no words spoken and none necessary.The film, which seeks neither to judge nor ignore Weiner's actions, sets out to show it.Suddenly Weiner's leading in the polls.Weiner's besieged with scandal questions.Weiner and Abedin apparently haven't seen the film.
