"Silver City": Oscar-winner Chris Cooper plays a born-again, tongue-tied heir to a Republican dynasty. Director John Sayles tells us: "He's like George W. when he was running for governor of Texas." Sayles has Pilager running in Colorado - where, while fishing on a lake for a campaign ad, he hooks a corpse. Sayles hopes to make voters think about the "assault on democracy."
"Fahrenheit 9/11: The Temperature When Freedom Burns": Michael ("Bowling for Columbine") Moore is in the editing room finishing his documentary, which should get hearty applause from the French when he unveils it at the Cannes Film Festival. The Oscar winner says he's tired of Bush calling captured Americans in Iraq "contractors."
"They are not there to fix a roof or to pour concrete in a driveway," he says. "They are mercenaries and soldiers of fortune. They are there for the money."
"Bush's Brain": A documentary that bluntly dissects the strategies of Dubya's political guru Karl Rove.
"The Hunting of the President": A look at President Bill Clinton's impeachment, produced by his longtime friend Harry Thomason.
Though it won't be ready for November, Sony has optioned Richard Clarke's "Against All Enemies," which gives a blistering assessment of Bush's counterterrorism planning. We're sure Dubya will be running to the multiplex.
