Death of a President

This hyper-controversial TV movie out of England posits the assassination of George W. Bush in Chicago. Strip away all of the controversy, and it's a relatively conventional fake documentary about a political conspiracy. The film plays out like a "whodunnit," sticking to the assassination and the search for the killer without really exploring the political and social repercussions. The actors are well-chosen, however, and the film feels--at times--uncomfortably real. 90 minutes R.
