October 17th is the day to think about politics, but in another way than we usually do. Oliver Stone’s W. opens in theaters this Friday to bring us a chronicle on the life and presidency of George W. Bush.
The film stars Josh Brolin as George W. Bush, Elizabeth Banks as Laura Bush, James Cromwell as George Herbert Walker Bush, Ellen Burstyn as Barbara Bush, Thandie Newton as Condoleezza Rice, Jeffrey Wright as Colin Powell, Scott Glenn as Donald Rumsfeld, and Ioan Gruffud as Tony Blair, and tells us about President’s struggles and triumphs, his personal life and the days leading to his decision to invade Iraq.
The film has so far gained mixed reviews but there’s one thing everybody agrees on – Josh Brolin’s amazing and “incredible” as Bush. He’s “a revelation”, “so good, he almost makes us feel sorry for Bush.”
The film is described as entertaining though lacking good chronological structure. Anyway, we must praise Mr. Stone for being both fresh and keenly precise to portray a sitting president with sympathy but criticism.
It must be fun to take a sneak peek into the White House life and decide what we think about the whole thing. But remember, it’s not a documentary, it’s just another good Oliver Stone movie.
