Filmmakers Phil Leirness (Spectres) and Dan Butler (Frasier) straddle genres with this political-thriller/comedy, wickedly satirizing the politics of both Washington DC and Hollywood. Although set in the Bush era, this film examines the timeless themes of corruption, conspiracy, and obsession. Butler plays a politically liberal actor who seeks to skewer Karl Rove in a one man show, but instead falls in love with him. The realism of his performance is frighteningly brilliant. The film is so cleverly constructed that lefties like me may see it as a scathing attack on the right, but I suspect Republicans may enjoy it equally as an attack on Hollywood's "liberal elite." Includes delightful cameos by Alec Baldwin and the real Karl Rove.
