Assassination Movie

This would be sick no matter who the President is or from what party. I do not believe any sitting President should be the subject of a movie about assassination.

President Bush 'assassinated' in new TV docudrama

This is the dramatic moment when President George Bush is gunned down by a sniper after a public address at a hotel, in a gripping new docudrama soon to be aired on TV.

Set around October 2007, President Bush is assassinated as he leaves the Sheraton Hotel in Chicago.

Death of a President, shot in the style of a retrospective documentary, looks at the effect the assassination of Bush has on America in light of its 'War on Terror'.

The 90 minutes feature explores who could have planned the murder, with a Syrian-born man wrongly put in the frame.

Peter Dale, head of More4, which is due to air the film on October 9, said the drama was a "thought-provoking critique" of contemporary US society.

He said: "It's an extraordinarily gripping and powerful piece of work, a drama constructed like a documentary that looks back at the assassination of George Bush as the starting point for a very gripping detective story.

"It's a pointed political examination of what the War on Terror did to the American body politic.

"I'm sure that there will be people who will be upset by it but when you watch it you realize what a sophisticated piece of work it is.

"It's not sensationalist, or simplistic but a very thought-provoking, powerful drama. I hope people will see that the intention behind it is good."

The film will premier at the Toronto Film Festival in September and was written and directed by Gabriel Range.

I understand the premise is to make people step back and look at how the war on terror has changed the American politic, however it would have been just as powerful and the political statement made had the film been set in 2009 with the "successor" to the sitting President. What this does, in it's current state, is lay the groundwork for some kook to carry out movies initial premise.

I really shouldn't be surprised by this movie, though. It is the logical "next step" for the left-wing Hollywood hate crowd.

You notice how brave they are with the premier being in Toronto.
