It seems like a distant memory now, but Pete Butigig only ran for President of the United States last year. Mayor Pete does takes us back to the pretty early days of this campaign. And shares a glimpse into the lives of Butigiegg and her husband Honest as they speak at the White House.
Before we dive in, there’s a predictable accent that tells us how Butigig went to Harvard. Who became a scientist from Rhodes, spent some time in the military. And changed things as mayor of South Bend, Indiana.
The real action in Mayor Pete begins a year before the Caucasus, Iowa, highlighting critical moments like CNN’s first mayor in Butigig, democratic debates.
And the heated mayoralty of his hometown of South Bend after the shooting of Eric Logan. Videos with him on stage may be familiar. Still, Mayor Pete looks behind the curtain and introduces us to meetings with his campaign advisers, rehearsals for debate, and intimate emotional moments.
Mayor Pete is full of great moments like Buttigieg gaining incredible powers:
The film brings us to the end of the campaign. When Butigieg retires and decides to support Biden. But not before it shows us how much he has grown during that participation. His debate performance improves over time – and smaller and more meaningful scenes.
Including Chasten speaking at the Pride Camp and while connecting with young people in the LGBTQ community. Pete and Chaston’s relationship is one of the most exciting components of the film. Although the intricacies of the campaign predictably overshadow it. They may not win, but they have made history.
Some of the best interviews in this film come from Pete Chaston’s husband. But I have to admit that Mayor Pete’s star is rescue dog Buddy, the one-eyed marvel who steals every scene.
It’s actually no secret that pets make politicians more popular. And Buddy (and Brother Truman) is being used to sell off the charming Butigig family. Give me hours for Buddy to ask about dinner will be seen.
Mayor Pete is a quirky little documentary. It’s not outlandish in its intent or form, but perhaps in what it reveals about its subject. The former South Bend, Indiana prodigy running for president in the 2020 election.
That’s not to say that Mayor Pete isn’t as flattering and overly attached to Buttigieg as the docs- this document. But it draws incredible attention to the man, his flaws and what makes him unique. We’ll see how the whole team illustrates such a political picture and what it takes for a young. Openly gay politician to do what Butigig did in an election.

If you’re like me, you’re probably trying to forget the 2020 election:
To erase memories of Donald Trump as President and the Democratic Party to eat alone until Joe Biden emerges victorious. Mayor Pete doesn’t want you to forget this trip, but he doesn’t want to make you miserable either.
Mayor Pete takes turns spending his time feeling like an entire campaign and reducing Butigig to a size that allows us to see it in a way we couldn’t before.
There’s a lot of discussion in the docs about Butijig’s stoic nature and lack of emotion. Buttigieg’s advisors don’t change the words, which makes for entertaining content.
I get tickled when someone says he’s “like the damn tin man over there,” because, let’s face it — we’ve all probably felt that one way or the another about Mayor Pete’s fortitude. Out of Butijig’s honour, the interviews and behind-the-scenes moments end up feeling like emotional vulnerability. It’s these bit revelations that make Mayor Pete worth watching, even as he strays into a futile project.
You may not get out of this loving a guy, but it’s impossible not to see the effect your walking has had on so many people. There is a time when a young woman with autism. All thanks to her for helping her no longer hide her true self and another.
When an emotional woman mourns the loss of a loved one to an overdose, asks about her plans for the drug epidemic, and hugs. To some, this may seem like political fodder, but if Mayor Pete proves anything, it’s that person’s feelings for these people — even if he doesn’t cry on camera, as we would like.
Mayor Pete may not be reinvented to the wheel. But it’s actually undeniably captivating and well-crafted photos of interesting historical moments.
