At The Movies

I just finished watching two movie rentals and I want to recommend them both: Death Of A President is the much-ballyhooed pseudo-documentary about the "assassination" of George W., or at least a dramatization of how such an event might play out. The usage of the president and other real-life figures gives the film a certain compelling urgency, and it brings up some legitimate questions about due process and the rights of the accused.
Then there's Color Me Kubrick, the true-ish story of a gay eccentric who cruised the London bar circuit in the early nineties, passing himself off as a certain reclusive film director, in return for drinks and companionship. Trust me: the first five minutes will make you laugh out loud.

Check out both these puppies by all means.
