Oliver Stone’s W

Marc Ambinder in the Altantic’s blog space, thinks Oliver Stone’s W Falls Short:

The story Stone presents has been told over and over, creating grooves in the brains of Bush-haters. Stone could have gone for something more subtle, but instead he chose the dartboard approach—with one exception. Bush’s religious conversion is treated sensitively and believably, and it leads to the best scene in the film, where the younger Bush and a cadre of political advisers try to convince the patrician Episcopalian 41 to speak the language of born agains. 41 didn’t go for that.
