George Bush has been assasinated.....

Only in America can you make a fictional movie about the assassination of the still-living President and get away with it! 'Death Of A President' is a fictional account of the events surrounding the assassination of George Bush. Set in year 2008, the film is shot in the style of a documentary.

The movie interestingly combines real archive footage of Bush and Cheney with staged actors to create the fictitious scenes. In one scene, Cheney even gives a funeral eulogy for Bush.

Similar to Michael Moore's 'Fahrenheit 9/11', this movie tells of the effects of the Iraq on American families. It's also frightening to see how the US government and secret service reacts, by pointing fingers at innocent people to find a scapegoat.

Whilst this film is a work of fiction, it is disturbing enough to make you think this could easily have happened anywhere and anytime. The movie could have easily been called 'Death of Democracy'.
