The creators of Game Change would probably insist that their work be interpreted as a work of entertainment, not journalism. But each change from the book (presuming, of course, Heilemann and Halperins reporting is accurate) moves the story in a particular direction. Palin becomes dumber. McCain becomes more craven, cynical, and desperate to win. McCains campaign aides are sloppier, more panicky, a mess. What director Roach and screenwriter Strong are portraying is recent history as they wish it had been.
As usual, liberals throw in some whoppers about conservatives and call the depiction true. It is probably "true" in the sense of being their true view of what conservatives are actually like - given that some liberals don't believe the truth has anything to do with the facts.
Well, how would you like it if everything you believed with every fiber of your being was shown to be undeniably, categorically, completely wrong?
Maybe you'd live in a fantasy world then... or come around to see that you were wrong. But if you feel rather than think, I'm guessing the former.
Sorry. I subscribe to HBO but nonetheless I’m going to skip this celluloid POS and instead watch the 2011 prequel to “The Thing.”
Sounds like a movie made for slobbering liberal scatter brains to drool over. It doesn’t have to be true, to be true for them. Lies are true and truth is lies.
Is there a rational person on this planet who expected it to be a true honest portrayal of events?
Naturally, the anti-Palin, pro-Romney, Michael Medved is pushing the film.
it must have been 20 years ago when HBO ran ‘Seabert’ an anti huning anti gun cartoon geared to kids....
I cancelled it then and see no reason to reinstall it any time soon...
RE: written by John Heilemann of New York magazine and Mark Halperin of Time.
The two names above and the publications they write for are ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW about the “even handedness” and “accuracy” ( Note the quotes ) of the film.
