Oliver Stone got the W but missed T and F

Famous director assigns motive to Bush's M.O., but at this point, who cares?

W. may be opening at a good time, but it doesn't exactly promise one. Stone omits the stolen 2000 election, stops short of the 2004 campaign, and spares us the second term, but this is still a painful movie to endure. I blame history more than Stone for that. But it's a shame that when the filmmaker contemplated the nature of imperial hubris four years ago, the gods decreed he should unleash Alexander rather than this. Back then, W. might actually have made a difference.
