  1. The film is a damning look at a key Bush operative.
  2. A skeptical view of George W. Bush's chief political strategist, Karl Rove, using argumentative strategies common to agenda-driven documentaries.
  3. 75
    One of the better political documentaries flooding into theaters after "Fahrenheit 9/11" and before the election.
  4. 75
    Potent if hardly evenhanded documentary.
  5. 70
    Full of enough legitimate red meat to incense salivating Democrats who can't wait to tear into a pound of Bush's flesh in November. Yet, this film should truly frighten partisans on both sides of the aisle.
  6. 63
    In a refreshing change of pace, this week's anti-Bush documentary, Bush's Brain, is not really about George W. Bush at all. It's about his senior political adviser, Karl Rove.
