Plot Summary

After September 11, 2001, when terrorist attacks leveled New York City's World Trade Center towers, mayor Rudolph Giuliani's public bravery and pluck in the midst of his city's greatest crisis made him a hero across the country and around the world. However, while Giuliani's actions after 9/11 made him seem like a champion, there has been significantly less attention paid to his record before the attacks. Documentary filmmaker Kevin Keating focuses on Giuliani's early years in politics, his often controversial and uncharitable stands on civil rights, social services, education, and law enforcement, and his political ambitions after leaving the mayor's office in Giuliani Time. Featuring newsreel footage and extensive interviews with political analysts and people who worked with Giuliani, the film offers an overview of the totality of the former mayor's career than has been absent in most recent profiles of his life.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The film, while hardly unbiased, is not entirely one-sided. – A.O. Scott, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: The trouble with Giuliani Time is that Keating, as a filmmaker, wants to give power to the people but in his every perception he takes it away from them. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Sep 7, 2011

Fresh: Keating strips away the self-aggrandizement and analyzes the record. – Jay Weissberg, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: With the former mayor currently enjoying one of the rare second acts in American political life, Giuliani Time does a strong job of reminding us what the first one was like. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Sep 20, 2007

Very Eye-Opening

A must-see documentary. This very controversial film investigates Giuliani's role as a politician. Event after event illustrates to the audience Giuliani's intolerance of anyone who dared to challenge his authority. I was very taken a back by Giuliani's request that the next mayor of New York delay being sworn in by three months.
