The newest Oliver Stone movie is now in theaters, W.

This film is a chronology of the most important events in President Bush’s life, from his college days in 1966 to his final days of his first term in 2004.

Josh Brolin is very good, perhaps even Oscar-worthy, as President Bush.

The supporting cast is good aside from Thandie Newton, who overacted as Condi.

As many reviews have mentioned, this is not a sole Bush-basher.

It may have you walking out of the theater, sympathetic of the man.

However, this did not apply to me.

Oliver Stone directed this film well and it is enjoyable for political junkies such as
Padmini Arhant.

Good luck at the movies!

Rating – 8/10
