A History Channel documentary from the future, where one George Herbert Walker Bush is assasinated in Chicago. Mixing interview footage with recreations and CGI manipulation, this “what if?” scenario plays out effectively and compellingly.
If there’s one gripe it’s that the recreation of the news clips lack a certain slickness and panic that besets the 24 hour stations at crisis times such as these. However, the talking head interviews and other elements make for an intelligent analysis of our reactions and prejudices about such a situation. A must see.
