I'd been planning on writing something about Oliver Stone's George Bush "biopic," W., but somehow never found the time. The film has gotten mixed reviews, with some commending its balanced look at Dubya's unforeseen ascendancy, and others dismissing it as largely unnecessary, given the wealth of published material about his failed administration.
I thought the movie was plenty worthwhile. At the very least, it will serve as a cinematic curio of an era we will hopefully soon put behind us.
We Americans have endured eight years of National Shame, which no mere film can erase. It also makes it difficult to be objective about W. That's why George Dvorsky's take at Sentient Developments is of particular interest. He's Canadian, you see.
Sounds a bit like Palin, doesn't it? Make sure you get to the polls (and get everyone you know to vote, too), lest history repeat itself before we have a chance to recover from Dubya's ruinous reign.
