Newmarket Films have picked up the rights to Death of a President, a mockumentary about the assassination of George W. Bush, and the aftermath of his death. The film is being planned for release in late October.
And some theater chains are already planning on banning it.
I will not take the bait regarding the right of an artist to present their art, or the right of the American people to see art, even if some in power regard that art as inappropriate. Nor will I comment on the idea that people should be more offended by some of the mush Hollywood shoves down their throat than a film with an actual idea.
And, yes, I would react the same way if this were a film about a Democrat being assassinated.
However, regarding the argument that's sure to follow, I will not take the bait.
