Great movie from 1980. The Candidate is a 10/10 movie for me. Before you read this review and before I spoil you the story, watch the movie, I highly recommend it. What's more, this is definitely the type of movie that you can watch several times and always see something new, interesting. Whoever has not seen let it rush in front of the TV, because this movie just has to be seen. You can watch it online here on and add your own subtitles if you are not native english speaker.
