Can't wait for W.?

Posted By on Wed, Oct 15, 2008 at 4:16 PM

If you just can't wait for this Friday's release of Oliver Stone's

" width=
Gallic mockumentary titled Being W. was released last week. The subtitle of the film is "Dans la peau de George W. Bush," which roughly translates as "In the shoes of George W. Bush." If my high school French serves me, the film's website describes it as "An unauthorized autobiography of the most controversial American president."

The premise of the movie is that Bush feels he's done such a bang-up job during the last eight years that he's decided he'll run for another term. Actual clips of the president's all-too-real verbal gaffes and embarrassing behavior are interwoven with depressing footage from Iraq and around the world as a Bush impersonator provides faux-insight into W.'s thoughts. You can watch a trailer here.

And the tone of the film? Perhaps the poster will give you a clue.
