Default Movie on Assassination of President Bush being released

http://www.cnn.com/2006/SHOWBIZ/TV/0...ion=cnn_latest

"Death of a President," shot in the form of a documentary examining the assassination, will use a blend of archival footage and computer-generated special effects to portray Bush in October 2007 arriving in Chicago during an anti-war rally.

In the film, Bush is killed by a sniper, and the investigation quickly focuses on a Syrian-born man. It will air in October on Channel 4's More4 digital channel, as well as at the Toronto Film Festival in September.

"It's a pointed political examination of what the war on terror is doing to the American body politic," said More4 boss Peter Dale at a press conference on Thursday.

Promotional materials described the program as "a thought-provoking critique of the contemporary U.S. political landscape."

It's unfortunate that such a movie is being released, on the grounds of its subject. Do you guys think that expression of such a thought in a movie should be legal? I'm not fully sure myself. I certainly lean towards saying yes. But, then again I probably wouldn't want a movie by the KKK on why black people are inferior to the white race to be released. It's legality would cover nearly the same grounds as this. Should it be legal?

i actually haven't heard anything about this movie...and not really clear as to what's the point of this movie...however we all know we love to making fun of Bush...however none of us really want him to die let alone being assassinated...(i could be wrong, there are some strong hatred people out there)...the whole country could literally be in another big shock...even though we all could argue that Dick Cheney is the real President at the moment anyways...(i won't go into that but yea)...plus the film could in turn make some psycho out there to actually replicate the film and shoot Bush...who knows...i'm just saying...hey the world is a crazy place...anyways legal or not this kind of film should not be put out there...so my answer is NO...

Channel 4 isn't very Hollywood...

I presume anyone stupid enough to think about attempting an assassination will have thought about it before this...

It's all Hollywood...it's a generic term like "Kleenex" or "Xerox".

A few things here.

1. While I understand the Hollywood bias argument, it doesnt really apply here. Its a British made film, and its premeiring in Canada.

2. Why are Republicans so goddamned touchy when it comes to Bush? Whenever someone farts in his general direction, Ann Coulter or Rush Limbaugh use it as an example of how liberals hate America. Yes, We hate Bush. Fucking Get over it...you all got to fuck with Clinton, we Get to Fuck with Bush...it's just different this time because the majority of the people actually agree with us...

3. Illegal Movies? Is it a snuff film? No, its a fucking goddamned hypothetical...Son of a Bitch...just let it go...

Have you seen any Channel 4 films? They're the complete opposite of Hollywood. They're low-budget and, more astonishingly, good...

Trainspotting was made by Channel 4. You've seen that, right?

That movie would be more accurate if he was to be killed by the CIA and then some Arab is named as the shooter.

Yeah, old topic, I know...

Death of a President was shown on More4 over here last night. It was a lot better than I expected. Even if you don't agree with the subject matter, you have to praise these guys for how realistic everything looks and the brilliant acting by the people being "interviewed". It was nowhere near as anti-American or Bush-hating as I thought it would be, and the circumstances leading up to the assassination seem believable enough. I thought the film-makers handled the fictional murder of a non-fictional currently-serving president as sensitively and respectfully as possible. There were some pretty intriguing "plot" twists in the who-done-it investigation, although because of the North Korean nuclear test, some of the stuff said in it is already out-of-date.

Just my thoughts...
