DEATH OF A PRESIDENT is most assuredly a film that will cause boisterous anger among those who are reacting to the title. It is an 'imagined documentary' about the assassination of President Bush on October 19, 2007, using this 'event' to explore the manner in which the US government copes with such a proposed event. In ways it echoes the JFK assassination, an event that still is under scrutiny as to why it happened and who was ultimately responsible. Using actual footage of President Bush at an Economic conference in Chicago along with reporters and actors who supply the drama, the film 'shows' the assassination and the aftermath with the subsequent frightening state of Cheney as President. But the emphasis is on how the driver of the story is placing blame, finding a perpetrator and then convincing Washington and the public why the event happened. It is terrifyingly believable. But few will see the film this way - a possibility and a series of consequences that might result. Perhaps it is better to quote the writer/director Gabriel Range who seems to sum it up best: "I have always known that I would be condemned for the very idea of this film, but I believe that sometimes it is not only acceptable for art to be outrageous - it is necessary. We live in a time of incredible fear... The advance condemnation of this film by politicians and pundits who have not seen - and may never see - this film reflects the landscape of fear in which we live today, and which my film attempts to address." Enough said. Grady Harp

The special effects and acting were great in this movie. You start out with a good impression of a documentary. The movie's portrail that the FBI was mistaken in that a Muslim was the culprit becomes obvious and only gets worse. By the end of the movie if you don't see it is a gimmick you are not paying close enough attention.

It is obvious that those who support George W Bush will go out of their way to write a bad review any chance they get. This is one of the best films that I have seen in a while. The flow was seamless and the casting was excellent. Every twist and turn hit so close to home because the moods and motives of the characters were taken from real-world events... That is the reason right-wingers will find it to be a turn off. Reality bites!
