10. W. (2008)

There's something weirdly a priori about Oliver Stone making a movie about George W. Bush. The whole enterprise had a "well, sure" quality about it, especially when Stone zigged instead of zagged and W. turned out to be not an all-out assualt, but a low-key, reasonably sympathetic snapshot of a man who looked to be on a path for anything but the job he ended up in. The third of Stone's presidential trilogy, check it out for Josh Brolin as the Chief Executive – the man does know his way around mutant Texas accents (see also Men in Black III and No Country for Old Men). Ironic/stunt casting alert: Hollywood lefto Richard Dreyfuss as Dick Cheney!
