Despite the constant thrive for objectivity, it is foolhardy to believe that one's own outside opinions and inherent biases have no effect on how one views a film. In the case of Oliver Stone's quasi-controversial "W.," I find it necessary to preface my review with a brief disclosure of my political "baggage," which surely had an inescapable and unmeasurable effect on my evaluation of Stone's work.

I voted for George W. Bush in 2004 (the first presidential election in which I was old enough to cast a ballot), but like so many Americans I soon saw the error of my ways as more information was revealed about the inner workings of his administration. I now consider myself "anti-Bush," if you want to put a label on it, but I also recognize Bush's good intentions, the understanding of which is key if you wish to gain a proper appreciation for the man and his place in history.
