Fair Game


Based on the true story of Valerie Plame vs. the scum of the GW Bush administration, including “Scooter” Libby (convicted, sentenced, and then commuted by scum Bush) and Dick Cheney, who deliberately outed her for blatantly political reasons concerning the lies they all told in the lead-up to the never-ending Iraq War. I didn’t follow the story all that closely at the time and so can’t vouch for its absolute accuracy, but if even a tenth of the things we see are true a lot more people should have gone to prison than ol’ Scooter, including Cheney and Bush. So sad that they will never be prosecuted. As a movie, it’s really only so-so, but Naomi Watts is always good, and she shines here.
