The plot and some details are on-line regarding Oliver Stone’s planned biopic of George W. Bush, “W”. Among the highlights of this “movie:”
– ”…after Dubya drains a pint of Wild Turkey and runs over a pile of trash cans while driving home, his angry father tells him to call Alcoholics Anonymous, prompting Dubya to sarcastically deride his dad as “Mr. Perfect. Mr. War Hero. Mr F– God Almighty.”
– “When Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld purportedly confronts Bush in 2002 about his obsession with Saddam: “What’s the big deal about Saddam? Bin Laden’s the trained ape that wrought this hell on us,” Dubya’s response sounds like a line out of “The Godfather”: “You don’t go after the Bushes and get to talk about it. Ya got me?”
– “When he hears about French Prime Minister Jacques Chirac’s desire to give weapons inspectors 30 more days to work in Iraq, Bush explodes: “Thirty days! I’d like to stuff a plate of freedom fries down that slick piece of s–’s throat!”
And it goes on like that. According to Stone, “I have empathy for Bush as a human being.” According to MTV News, it is rumored that Paul Giamatti has been approached to play top aide Karl Rove. “W” is expected to reach theaters by January.
I’m sure you can’t wait to see it.
