Cooper does a terrific job, mimicking Bush's speech and mannerisms as well as his tendency to ramble and go off script with hilarious consequences.

Sayles traces how rumor, conjecture, and outright lies seep into the [political] discussion and drive it.

At its core, Silver City is a biting tirade on the current anti-enviromental policies of the Bush administration.

Sayles may be after the big picture of poisonous politics in Silver City, but it's the small strokes like Dreyfuss' that bring it to life.

Becomes mired in Sayles' weakness for enormous ensemble casts and murky plots. The guy can tell a great story when he wants to, but I guess sometimes he just doesn't want to.

Sayles' prolix narrative, weighed down with subplots and characters and canvassing many social ills, dilutes the impact of a work that should nevertheless still make an impact on thoughtful viewers.

In a role clearly meant to skewer our Commander in Chief, Chris Cooper goes far deeper than impersonation with his antagonistic relationship with words and religious rebirth.
September 22, 2004
John Sayles gives us a murder mystery highlighted by several cynical observations of current American politics. The plot as expected of Sayles is intelligent.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

Slow paced, but interesting, Silver City is a decent flick that entertains primarily because of the political turmoil our own country is in right now.
