Posle Džimija Morisona, JKF, Niksona, Aleksandra Velikog, Kasta, Mikija i Melori, na red je došao i Džordž Buš. Oliver Stone režirao je provokativan film u kome su glavni junaci pored Džordža, i Laura, Džordž stariji, Barbara, Toni Bler, Kolin Pauvel, Kondoliza Rajs, Donald Ramsfeld, Dik Čejni i ostatak sveta. Film se zove W. Nadam se da je ovo veliki povratak velikog reditelja posle skoro 10 godina (što se mene tiče Natural born killers mi je sasvim dovoljan). Film Aleksandar nikako ne mogu da mu oprostim.
Dragi prijatelji, na jesen nas čeka W.
TALES FROM THE SCRIPT
Stone and co-writer Stanley Weiser are still polishing the W script. Judging from an early draft, though, the movie will be darkly funny — at Bush's expense. Highlights:
Oedipal Wreck After his father is elected president, Bush tells Laura, ''I'll never get out of Poppy's shadow.... I wish he'd LOST.... No matter what I do, it's never going to be good enough.''
Tough Talker Bush, 26, drunk-drives his car onto the lawn of his parents' D.C. home, and challenges his dad to a fight, ''Let's go mano a mano! Right here. Right now!'' Then, in 2003, when France fails to back the U.S. on its invasion of Iraq, Bush says of French president Jacques Chirac, ''I'd like to stuff a plate of freedom fries down that slick piece of s---'s throat.''
Practical Joker During a prep meeting on Iraq, Bush playfully locks Colin Powell out of the room. He then steals a mint from Condoleezza Rice and tells Paul Wolfowitz to trim his ear hair.
Man of Faith In 1999, Bush confesses to a televangelist, ''The truth is, I really don't want to run [for president].... But I feel that God wants me to do this, and I must do it. I MUST.''
Brother in Arms In a 2003 sit-down with Saudi ambassador Prince Bandar, Bush explains that he has given up sweets since the beginning of the Iraq war. ''This is my personal sacrifice to show support for our troops,'' he says.
