Vice and the Bush Administration

Nicole and Garrett discuss Vice, differing opinions on the quality of the movie, the incredible transformation by Christian Bale and the rest of the cast’s ability to capture real figures, and our experiences of the Bush administration. Follow our wide-ranging discussion on politics and how Bush and 9/11 got us to where we are today. Read Garrett’s review of the movie on Cinema Babel and follow up on the controversy over the credits scene. Check out The Hill’s argument in favor of exile as punishment.

Nicole recommends the podcast, The Dream. Garrett recommends Buying the War, a Bill Moyers’ documentary, and The Storm Before the Storm: The Beginning of the End of the Roman Republic by Mike Duncan.
