      Chris Hewitt St. Paul Pioneer Press Unlike many political documentaries, this big-hearted, well-made film is genuinely interested in understanding both sides. Rated: 3/4 Aug 29, 2008 Full Review Norm Schrager Filmcritic.com shows a skilled hand at documentary filmmaking, entertaining above all Rated: 4/5 Jul 6, 2008 Full Review Jette Kernion Cinematical Focuses not on stereotypes but on human beings, who are a lot more complicated than red-and-blue, and the way political strategies touch their lives. Rated: 3.25/5 Apr 17, 2008 Full Review Erik Childress eFilmCritic.com Modigliani is there from the beginning which helps bring potency and unexpected tragedy to the lives of both Bush's local supporters and his dissenters. Rated: 3.5/4 Apr 9, 2008 Full Review Joshua Tyler CinemaBlend Immensely even-handed, entertaining, and because of the heroic determination of soft-spoken Misti Turbeville, incredibly affecting.

      Audience Member George Bush Jr. moves to Crawford,TX. to improve his image in hopes of getting into The White House right before election time.Wow Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member A previous reviewer said it better than I ever could: "This film reflects the experience of America during the time of George W. Bush by showcasing the denizens of the president's 'home town' of Crawford, Texas during his administration. The town is a metaphor for the greater country. People live in fear; fear of foreign terrorists, yes, but even more fearful of each other, and of the crushing conservative dogma of loyalty no matter the cost. Relationships are strained, emotions boil over, and the town goes through a dangerous turn that divides neighbors and causes irreparable harm. This film does not take sides. It does not try to make Bush or his supporters look foolish; it gives them voice, while offering substantial time to opposing views, including those of activist Cindy Sheehan. The people of Crawford are interesting, their stories inspiring, entertaining, and sometimes moving. This film should be viewed as a time capsule of America during the W. Bush era, and viewed by future generations in that light. It would make a worthy addition to any history class." - Matt Gilbert Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Fantastic documentary about real people as opposed to the phony ones shown on TV.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member A perfectly average documentary about how the small town of Crawford has dealt with having President Bush as a resident for the past eight years. I've seen better docs, but I've seen worse as well. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
