Oliver Stone highlights Dubbya’s drunken, messy side in trailer
Whew. I had to look long and hard for some news completely unrelated to Comic Con (something tells me Oliver Stone would steer clear of Geek Fest 2008 when releasing the trailer for his newest biopic, “W.,” which will examine the presidential shit-show that is George W. Bush’s life even before he officially leaves office).
After seeing the trailer, which was released earlier today, I can totally see how the stars of the flick were arrested after a drunken bar fight while on location for the movie. The two-minute teaser laughably spotlights beer bongs, drunk tanks, “Do you think you’re a Kennedy?” fights with Daddy and enough implications that W. majorly messed up, both before and during his time as Commander in Chief that I might actually enjoy watching this movie.
Even though Stone promised a “a fair, true portrait of the man,” it seems like there’s going to be a whole lot more emphasis on the “alcoholic bum” side of Bush’s life, as opposed to the “President of the United States” part. Anyway, You juct have to see what I’m talking about:
Although I find it hard to be against a piece of media that depicts Bush an absolute, sloppy jackass, I don’t trust Stone’s intentions on this one. Before the man with the lowest Presidential rating in the history of such a statistic even exits his post, Stone his releasing a movie about his life? It seems to me that he may be trying to capitalize on how much the general public f-ing hates him by pumping out a flick about him.
Wouldn’t it make more sense to make this movie ten years from now, when Stone or whoever made this movie then could have time for research, development and retrospect, in order to give a more accurate depiction of the man’s time on Earth? I mean, I’m sure that movie would still be laced with drunken rampages and epic blunders, but at least that flick, I think, could be shown more objectively because of the extra time to reflect on said drunken rampages and epic blunders.
Oh well, that’s not going to stop me from seeing it.
