Has anyone seen Oliver Stone’s latest movie “W.” yet? Do you plan to?
It apparently did semi-ok at the box office (not great), and was released just in time for the November 4th Presidential Election.
Some review snippits:
- “Stone’s research has proved, to him, that W. is not anti-Bush. It is the story of a fortunate man caught in a very unfortunate position.”
- “W. does not depict the story of the 43rd President of the United States. It is merely a film about a man who happened to become the 43rd President of the United States.”
- “This isn’t a movie for Liberals. It isn’t a movie for Conservatives. It’s a movie that explores, in compressed form, what happens when the wheels come off the political cart, and why, and how.”
- “It is a sad tale of a man who ends up somewhere he never wanted to be and finds himself trusting people he never should have listened to. It is a story of a lost soul.”
As I always like movie trailers better than the actual movie most of the time – here’s a preview:
