I cannot think of a better subject to kick off this blog with. Ok, it's not a movie in a sense, but fuck it, it's my blog, right?
After having just seen this DVD for the probably 5th time now, there has not been and most likely will never be another production that captures the craziness, terror and sadness of the Bush administration as effectively as this Broadway-play-turned-into-HBO-DVD. And before you raise your hand in objection, no, Oliver Stone's "W." didn't even come close. Farrell IS the former President of the United States and the show itself is a fitting, well written and very funny farewell for the perfect interpertation of a figure that's quite tragic actually.
The production covers most of the major milestones of Bush's presidency and his cabinet doesn't get a free pass either, which is justified to say the least. Besides it's fun to point out the celebrities from the audience, including.. nah, to hell with it, you do it yourself.
Will Farrell hautaa kenties tunnetuimman ja rakastetuimman tulkintansa kunnialla ja loistavasti kirjoitetun satiirin puitteissa. Suositellaan jokaiselle Farrellin fanille ja jokaiselle jolla ei ole ollut pää pensaassa Bushin kausien aikana.
