Every decade, the major political parties gear up for a cartographic war that determines who gets to control Congress for the next ten years, and possibly more. It is the ultimate political weapon: the ability to directly determine the outcomes of elections. This practice, gerrymandering, is perfectly legal. Gerrymandering exposes the most effective form of manipulating elections short of outright fraud.

This interesting documentary does a fine job in defining what gerrymandering is and the danger that the practice poses to small 'd' democracy. Several examples in areas such as Los Angeles and Martha's Vineyard get an illuminating focus that's eye-opening. The core issue with the film, though, is that it spends just about all of its time talking about the problems with the practice. There's little in the way of concrete solutions offered. As the primer to talking about a growing issue with our country's government, however, the movie still remains worth watching.
