Bush assassination film wins festival prize for revealing "larger truth"

The rules of good taste and decency change when the occupant of the White House has an (R) next to his name. Bill Clinton got The American President and other schlock. George W. Bush gets Death of a President.

And what a film, apparently: it got the festival prize by unanimous vote of a five-member jury of the International Federation of Film Critics (FIPRESCI), despite having received "largely negative reviews."

FIPRESCI's general secretary insists there was nothing political about their decision, and that in fact the film "irritated us a lot." On what basis, then, did they award it a prize?

"[F]or the audacity with which it distorts reality to reveal a larger truth." The "larger truth" presumably being (a) Arab Muslims are fall guys in the war on terror, (b) Bush needs to be shot in the chest at close range, (c) all of the above.

None of us thought this day would come, but it has, and it would be bad form not to acknowledge it: Hillary has become the voice of reason.
