Take a break from work: watch a movie trailer…
Wow. Oliver Stone is a nut, but he’s a nut I sympathize with — I dunno whether to believe a word of his JFK, but, as a movie, it’s genius. Is that what we’re in for here? No, scratch that: there is no doubt that George W. Bush, our Dear Leader, was a drunk and a cad and completely fucking useless before he became President of the United States, and worse after, but will Stone actually tell that story? Surely, that “Wonderful World” song in the trailer is ironic, right? Oh, Jesus Christ, right?
Holy crap, is that Ioan Gruffudd as Tony Blair? Neat. I’ve been Ioan’s champion from way back, and I’m also madly in love with Michael Sheen as Tony Blair, but still: nice.
W. opens limited October 17.
