The Best Man The dialogue in the movie The Best Man was a significant aspect in portraying the films political message The first thing I noticed in the dialogue was the sick president sayingThe rich used to play polo but now they play politics This statement not only suggested that politics were changing by the rich getting into politics but the way he used the word play as if politics were a game The dialogue further more represents this idea when the poor presidential candidate ends one of his speeches with May the best man win where the word win suggests a competition or a game The movies cinematography demonstrates the game being played Often in the movie the parties were behind closed doors smoke filled rooms where the presidential candidate is the player along with the rest of the party The party works to dig up the dirt they need to use against their opponents to better their position in the game This part can be known as dirty politics because not everything done behind closed doors is right or even legal Its this part of the game that the American people never see but we do see a certain part of the game that is also very important in who wins This is the part where the player actually makes his move and exposes the dirt The player also tells the people what he is about and why he should be the champion The characterization in the movie helped to establish what kind of player the player is The rich presidential candidate represents a good player who doesnt want to cheat he represents pure politics He says he is a self made man with self made issues which means he hasnt had to cheat to get anywhere and the ideas he portrays are his own The other player the poor presidential candidate represents dirty politics Hes the player who cheats
