Easily the year's most useless picture

Despite the audacious title and premise, Range doesn't aim to shock, but to unnerve

Beyond the feigned controversy stirred up by neocon zealots, "Death of a President" is nothing more than a high concept political hypothesis film that signals the futility of presidential assassination.

It is at least slick with technique -- or with a synthesis of techniques.

Without directly confronting the behaviors and attitudes associated with its theory, the movie leaves us with uncertainty, vacillation, and worst of all, emptiness.

The talking head interviews and other elements make for an intelligent analysis of our reactions and prejudices about such a situation. A must see.

OK, so, it's got balls and technical skills, but is it anything more than a stunt? Yes, yes it is.

There is little of the fall of the Twin Towers trauma, but much of All the President's Men here. That this film's buzz has launched such vitriol and condemnation is not surprising. Range's film exposes wider audiences to some basic truths of our times.

It's hard to imagine anyone without a political agenda who can walk away from this serious, sober and impeccably respectful film and get agitated about it on its merits.

As a piece of filmmaking, Death of a President is edgy and fresh, superbly realised and satisfying in its ambition to pass as a powerful documentary about an event that shook the world.

Zertinet Movies

It's not art, it's not a serious discussion, it's not a film based in irony or metaphor -- Death of a President is merely a marketing ploy that's big on shock value and short on ideas.

So long as you think it's okay to depict a realistic-looking assassination of a sitting president via doctored news footage, then you're likely to enjoy this intriguing whodunit in which George Bush is blown away by one of his fed-up detractors.

Capital Times (Madison, WI)

"Death of a President" is generally a sobering film that not only dares to think the unthinkable, but encourages its audience, no matter what their political leans, to stop and think as well.

The movie does highlight the ways that news and commercial images shape public perception.

Despite being heavy-handed and pretentious, and never providing a satisfying conclusion, Gabriel Range's fake-umentary "Death of a President" is nevertheless brilliant in its conception and execution.

Accomplished and visually persuasive, but the movie's central conceit remains something of a stunt...

It is indeed ironic that a film that is often so good at making one suspend their disbelief still can't generate a true emotional response in the end. Despite its shortcomings, Death of a President is an interesting and provocative work that merits

Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema

[The director] has expertly interwoven real and simulated footage to make a film that looks convincing, but it amounts to little more than a clever editing exercise.
