At long last: Sen. Al Franken

At the end of my 2006 Variety review of Al Franken: God Spoke, I wrote: "Franken seems self-reflective only in the final scenes, as he contemplates reinventing himself once again -- this time, as a serious candidate for public office. Trouble is, he admits, he might have to temper the tone of his humor (and avoid anything potentially offensive) if he wants to reach voters. And that, [the documentary] suggests, may be a price he'll be unwilling to pay." There are times in this life when I am very happy to be proven wrong. Today is one of those times.
