Stimulating and provocative satirical look at George W.
23 August 2006 | by mcgivenSee all my reviews

"George Bush Goes to Heaven" is a satirical look at the reign of George W. To fully appreciate this movie requires an awareness of the political, economic, social and environmental turmoil facing this nation and the world. At the screening I attended, the story resonated deeply with the news-savvy members of the audience. They got the humor, the jokes, and the irony that played out on a theme "What would happen if the President had to tell the truth". For the less aware, this movie stirs up questions about the future of their country and the integrity of the present administration.

The story is about dissent and the consequence there of. Larry Sparks, an angry Republican, frustrated by the antics of his own political party, vents his anger on the web. When the Feds monitor his activities and warn him to cease, he launches his one-man campaign with a satirical community play. The movie mirrors the fears many people have suppressed that to question this administration's policies is somehow un-American, disloyal, and anti-Christian. The witty humor used in this film unlocks those fears and encourages productive and rational discussions. At Starbucks following the movie, on the talk-generating scale, we rated it as a Caffe Grande, Latte, of course. Stimulating and provocative.
