NYT: Manohla Dargis Reviews Oliver Stone’s “W.”


2 of 5 stars
What’s this?

“It says nothing new or insightful about the president, his triumphs and calamities. (As if anyone goes to an Oliver Stone movie for a reality check.) But it does something most journalism and even documentaries can’t or won’t do: it reminds us what a long, strange trip it’s been to the Bush White House.” On a side note, it’s amusing to me that, with this movie, the Brolin family has now cornered the market for liberal actors playing Republican presidents.
