The story of the famous and influential 1960s rock band and its lead singer and composer, Jim Morrison, from his days as a UCLA film student in Los Angeles, to his untimely death in Paris, France at age 27 in 1971.
Oliver Stone's biographical take on the life of George W. Bush, one of the most controversial presidents in USA history, chronicling from his wild and carefree days in college, to his military service, to his governorship of Texas and role in the oil business, his 2000 candidacy for president, his first turbulent four years, and his 2004 re-election campaign. Written by
W., an outlined bio pic of former President George W. Bush and directed by Oliver Stone should be on every critics top ten horror film lists. Stone directs the film with a flat and unattached manner as if simulating the title characters own persona. There is nothing learned or gained by watching this film with the exception of knowing that there is definitely a major problem in our country right now when an individual of this nature is able to win Presidency. The horror of this film is that George W. Bush is portrayed as a drunk, set out to prove something to his ego. There is not one profound statement made from a leader detached from vanity or power. There is no philosophy or attribute toward a better world. There is only pettiness and spite. The film is sad and it leaves a note of a troubled America. The cast does a great job of creating a selfish interest group bent out of shape in the pasture land of Bush's Homestead. George W. Bush is portrayed as a brat, a trait that never seemed to go away. Where is the heart and mind of a leader? Surely, at some point, George W. had to have an epiphany...something!...anything! that justifies eight years of being President.
