There's a cowardice at work here. Playing with the powerful tools of documentary, it poses as artistically courageous when it's often little more than a muddied if familiar meditation on the sorry state of affairs the U.S. finds itself in in Iraq.
Mr. Range is a talented man who knows how to control images and emotions, up to a point. By virtue of its subject, however, Death of a President takes on an unreal life of its own. The film itself becomes a riderless horse.
Death of a President isn't art, or even entertainment: It's the art-house, indie-doc equivalent of Snakes on a Plane, where someone thought of a single idea and then, it seems based on the end-resulting film, stopped thinking altogether.
Beyond the feigned controversy stirred up by neocon zealots, "Death of a President" is nothing more than a high concept political hypothesis film that signals the futility of presidential assassination.
