"Hillary: The Movie"

I was surprised I didn't know about this. Either I'm that out of touch or this really hasn't been that big of a hot button issue.
Anyway, the Supreme Court is tackling a First Amendment case involving a movie about Hillary Clinton.
A 2008 documentary that is critical of the former presidential candidate and current secretary of state ran into a snag as it is questionable whether the 90-minute flick should be subject to campaign finance laws.
I guess this could determine whether documentaries carrying a political message can be regulated by the government or not like campaign commercials. Interesting, but wouldn't that be a violation of the First Amendment?
