Bush Assassination Film Applauded At Festival

A controversial British drama about the fictional assassination of US President GEORGE W BUSH has been applauded following its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in Canada. DEATH OF A PRESIDENT, which shows Bush shot dead in Chicago, Illinois in 2007, was recently slammed as "irresponsible" and "horrible" by American politicians. However, director GABRIEL RANGE claims critics are judging the film unfairly as they have yet to see it. He says, "I think the film makes it clear it would really be a horrific event. I really don't think that anyone would get the idea of assassinating Bush from this film." He adds, "It is using the lens of the future to look at the present. It is about issues that have affected us all in the last five years. It is a film about America today. "The central conceit of the film was that it is a drama, but told in the style of what we hope is a fairly authentic, classic, retrospective documentary. Clearly, if we had told a retrospective documentary with a fictional president, it would have undermined and undercut that central idea."

I don't think the current administration has anything to do with nazism. I don't know what the correlation there is. I assume people mean that by invading Iraq we are nazis. But I don't remember Nazis invading Poland in 1939, then asking them to hold democratic elections.

So bush’s "democracy" is Iraq’s reward for not having weapons of mass destruction? In 1939 spin doctoring did not have to contend with nearly instant world review. Offering democracy is a logical pacifier to those who object to american SS style home invasion & abduction. You smart americans, now you have the “patriot act” to allow SS style home invasion & abduction to happen to you and you have no recourse. Keep your “american dream” out of my country – Canada.
