W movie Waste

The trailer looked interesting, so could this be a true insight by Oliver Stone into the Bush enigma.  Josh Brolin, eerily channeled GW with a spot on performance.  The rest of the cast was very good , but the movie was a big disappointment.   Oliver Stone's W, would have been a straight to dvd movie if it was from a lesser known director.  Squirming through the 2 hour plus movie, I started to feel what it must be like to be Laura Bush. I hope for her sake W isn't that boring in real life. 

The movie jumps around in time, showing W as he goes through his Yale initiation, his introduction to Laura, the battle with the elder Bush as W plays a game of one upmanship with his Poppy, and his grand scheme for going to war. Absolutely nothing new here that we haven't tortuously lived through, seen and heard. Been there done that, deja vu all over again.  Conservatives will not be offended by this movie and liberals will only see the obvious. Trying to condense so much information, Stone unfortunately leaves out things like the 2000 election fiasco, the Katrina debacle and W's momentous drop in popularity. I guess Stone in trying to get this movie out before the election fails miserably in capturing anything of true insight or interest. Save your ten bucks.
