  1. The movie IS a provocation, but not a glib or ideologically myopic one.

    Entertainment wise, I think the very premise of this film doomed it from the beggining. It became distracting when one found himself trying to separate fact from fiction. Additionally, the movie lacked elements that make a good movie: plot, protagonists, action, drama. I did appreciate however, the intelligence that went behind making the film. It did NOT endorse the death of Bush, but rather looked at the world had as if he had died. It did make me think about how many people think a dead president will benifit or destroy this country, and I believe the movie is directed at them. Full Review »

    It was an alright film; I think the premise outweighs the execution. I can understand if people found it uninteresting, or non earth-shattering as there was very little insight to be take from this. No, instead it's an interesting premise of wishful thinking people who rally against Bush would want to see. That's why I enjoyed it for the most part, but amazed there are so many people willing to give it 0-3 because it was "boring" to them; Sorry, but that just means they were convinced on not liking it before they even saw it (if they saw it) because of their political agenda.

    A fine film that's only slightly about a Bush assassination. It's more about the nation he (and we) made. The crime's aftermath turns into a rather profound cross between "Rashomon" and 1940s film noir. It ultimately suggests that almost anyone might have had some motive, and might have shared some of the culpability. Full Review »
