I went to see W. I was left feeling sad. This was the story of a man with big psychological problems that were never treated. He ends up in the White House. It's unclear if, were he surrounded by right-thinking people, he could have done a better job. But he wasn't -- most of the people in his cabinet were scary, the most sinister being Rumsfeld and Cheney -- especially Cheney. Colin Powell tried to bring in some reason and balance in the Iraq matter, but was shot down by this cabal, including Condoleeza Rice. He ends up going along with what turns out to be a lie. The actual figure of W. came off as fairly sympathetic. He was rough at the edges, but you couldn't help feeling that had he had treatment, the support of his parents (he seemed to have had to act out to get their attention, and the attention he did get was disapproval), he could have had a better life, and not as President for which he was not equipped.
Josh Brolin did an incredible job. I see Oscars.
