The only reason to make it about Bush was to stir up controversy, and frankly, I find it in bad taste. If the goal was to make Americans think, then using a fictional president would have done the job. |
If it were a fictional President, noone would care, the same issues would be raised, but they'd be ignoredbecause there part of an exisiting fictional context and won't be seperated from that by the audience, with Bush being used, the film is saying "hey, we're talking about the real problems and solutions that come with this guy's death"
It's a theoretical project, as every discussion about Bush's cabinet is, back and fourth, left and right, this may even look at both sides, not just saying "Hey, wanna see a movie where Bush gets what's coming to him before 9/11?)
