  • President Bush shot!!?!! (fiction)

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/liv...3&in_a_source=

    Found this via Leejo's last link, and thought y'all might find it interesting...



    The movie unfolds as a retrospective documentary that interviews fictional former Secret Service and FBI investigators and members of the Bush administration after the President's death.

    They discuss the run up to a speech Bush was to give in Chicago 2007 and how 12,000 demonstrators took to the streets waving placards which read 'War Is Terrorism' and 'Stop Bush'.

    The film use archival footage of Bush actually arriving in Chicago, combining it with actors playing his various aides. After Bush makes a speech we see him in a holding room taking a breather before exiting the hotel's conference centre.

    A fictional Secret Service officer recalls how he had a feeling in the pit of his stomach that something was wrong.' He (Bush) looked at me and said, 'Larry is there a problem?'

    The Secret Service man, Larry, responded that there wasn't a problem. Even so we see him scanning the crowds looking into the eyes of those waiting.

    Seconds later shots are fired and Bush slumps to the ground. There are news bulletins about him being taken to hospital and later we learn of his passing.

    Perhaps, the most chilling moment, for some, comes when Vice president Cheney is named President. There's a scene of him delivering an eulogy, another clever use of computer generated imagery and voice doctoring.

    I've been reading about this for a couple of weeks.

    I'm shocked that nobody ever explained to the director the tremendous irony that his film, which supposedly exposes the "current environment" in America, can only do so by killing and replacing America's leader.

      Wait, is that irony? Where's Leejo?

      Yeah, I might disagree with the political statement that is trying to be made, but I'd really like to see this film.

      Ever read any of Turtledove's alternative history novels? Pretty cool...

        I have his WWII series, but not the Civil War stuff. Fun reads, all.

          The movie was shown at the Toronto Intern'l Film festival.
          There was a column about it in the paper this weekend.

          I'd like to go see it too.

          Lol, I just read the comments at the bottom of the link, what a laugh.
          Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never really care for anything else thereafter.
