Interesting movie concept: Death of a President

My roommate Fernando pointed out a new film which I find to be a fascinating concept: Death of a President is a fake documentary examining the events surrounding the fictional assassination of President Bush in February of 2007. I like the idea of this movie not because of its political subject, but rather because I’ve always been fascinated by the idea of fictionalized documentaries. They seem to be the closest thing to a completely fabricated reality that can be achieved on screen. Anyway, here’s a trailer:

What do you think?

  1. Yes, I too am looking forward to seeing the John Lennon documentary, and I’d never heard of Zen Noir before but it looks AMAZING! And, by some freak booking coincidence, it’s showing in Minneapolis next month! I am SO going to go see it!

  2. Damn you! All we are getting s shitty kids CG, Fearless (which ws great and I don’t generally like Jung F), and Jackass 2.
    At least Inconvenient Truth is still showing.

  3. Would everybody be interested in arranging a movie-going party when DoaP comes to town? Seeing Little Miss Sunshine as a group was thought-provoking and fostered conversation. Perhaps a mockumentary would do the same.

  4. Hate to break it to you, Evan, but at this point it looks like DoaP won’t be coming anywhere near Fort Collins, or even Denver. I’m not even sure it’s showed in the United States yet.

    But one can always hope…

  5. HA!

    My aunt, who by the way just won some bronze medal thingy by the Department of Commerce in Washing-ton, D dot C dot, has invited me to a showing of Zen Noir! Apparently, it’s in Boulder either this week or next.
