DVD pick: W

Director: Oliver Stone

The former Dubya-in-chief became the first president to get his own big-screen film biography while still in office.

While the film found only a modest audience, director Oliver Stone defied expectations by keeping his inflammatory opinions fairly in check, instead delivering an empathetic if not sympathetic portrait of George W. Bush. Josh Brolin, an Academy Award nominee for “Milk,” stars as Bush from his rowdy college and boozy business days through his born-again abstinence years and unlikely rise to political power.
