Director Oliver Stone sets the tone with a baseball analogy dream sequence as cornball as a Bush Administration press release that recurs throughout the film to gear us for the visual punch-line summing up Dub-ya’s legacy; a fly-ball lost in the heavens never to find its way back down into the befuddled president’s outstretched mitt! Judging from the goofy ad campaign, I was looking forward to a Mad Magazine type farce but got a borderline sympathetic biopic instead (closest I came was a brief shot of Alfred E. Neuman as George W. Bush on a protestor’s picket sign)! WTF are you doing humanizing this dumb-ass? The heading for this Motion Picture Purgatory which originally appeared in a 2008 issue of The Montreal Mirror was “Sympathy For The Devil!” As always; the original art’s for sale @ 100 bucks.
