Posted on

9230__bush_lDeath of a President (Oct. 27) No matter your political stance, it’s likely you’ll feel a tad unsettled after watching the trailer for this documentary-style take on the fictionalized assassination of President Bush, which took home the international critics’ prize at the recent Toronto Film Festival. The way director Gabriel Range melds news clips with footage of actors playing bystanders to the event certainly looks compelling, but unless this one starts looking like an Oscar contender, I might wuss out and spend my fall entertainment dollars on something a little less harrowing. How about you, PopWatchers?
