I had high hopes for Oliver Stone’s film about the Bush Administration, W. I was really hoping for some laughs in the face of the infamous administration whom has destroyed America’s reputation.
Instead, all I got was an extremely loooooooong and equally boooooooring movie. As far as comedy goes, Bush himself has more comedic one liners than this entire movie!
Do some research Stone!
Most of the movie focused on Bush’s younger years, portrayed as spoiled, whiny fuck-up who has daddy issues. Oh so sad but not enough to make up for his sportsman mentality where winning must be achieved at any cost.
W tells its audience a teeny bit about current history but if you know a smidge about how effed the real administration is this won’t be new to you.
Instead, I would recommend skipping W in the theater and renting excellent Frontline Documentary, Bush’s War
