Oliver Stone’s W.

Opening this Friday nationwide is Oliver Stone’s newest (and perhaps most controversial) film, W. Rumor has it, Josh Brolin (playing Dubb ya) does a mean impersonation, and has the acting chops to back it up.  Whether or not you approved of Bush, or his administration, there’s no denying that he’s one of the most controversial characters in recent political history. ... Read More
