Neither a smear campaign nor propaganda piece, but rather a fascinating look at one of the more controversial presidents in recent memory that may end up changing your perspective on the Bush you only thought you knew.

No matter which way your political stripes run, W. won't likely rub them the wrong way.

Brolin outdoes himself in the title role.

Aided by an Oscar-worthy turn from Josh Brolin, what "W." attempts is something far bolder than badgering. Instead, Oliver Stone spews a subtler invective than normal here - insightful and indicting of a country's complicity up to a point.

Uma mistura de documentário e esquete do Saturday Night Live.

It's a film with a shelf life, I think. Unlike W himself, it should mature over time.

An absorbing and weirdly enjoyable portrait of a slight, meritless man and his calamitous presidency.

Endeavours this even-handed and entertaining shouldn't be "misunderestimated."

More character piece than the expected tragedy or parody, W. is surprisingly good fun.
February 27, 2009
Part satire, part biopic, part behind-the scenes political drama, W gets stranded in a no-man's land somewhere in between.

It's interesting, it's well done, but that's about it.

First and foremost, W. dazzles by Josh Brolin's astounding performance, but the film itself entertains and engages thoroughly from start to finish.

A movie that's like a photo album made of moving pictures, focusing on his early, untamed life, the extraordinary turnaround and finally the first term.
February 12, 2009
Rather simplistic and reductive, but something tells me Oliver Stone didn't mind it turning out that way.

W. is the October surprise. The movie won't change anybody's ideas about the values of the last eight years. But it may make some of us think differently about their protagonist. If one expects -- or demands -- a Liberal screed against G.W. Bush, t

When [Stone] looks into Bush's eyes... he's reflecting on the long, tormented nights of many an American soul.

Josh Brolin develops an ingenious physical tic that encompasses the President: He talks with his mouth full, like a man who's bitten off more than he can chew.
