Film on Lee Atwater, who Karl Rove calls “part myth,” “part political mastermind,” on DVD

The documentary about Republican strategist Lee Atwater, mentor to George W. Bush and Karl Rove and evil villain to Democrats, is now on DVD.

Stefan Forbes’ Boogie Man: The Lee Atwater Story aired on PBS and the BBC, but was recently released as a special director’s cut DVD that includes footage that didn’t air on TV. Roger Ebert called the film “a fascinating portrait of an almost likable rogue.”

Here’s the trailer:
