Movie Reviews

A President for which I now have even greater respect
R. F. Peterson | Winona, MN | 11/26/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have long had an interest in American history, and especially for notable Presidents. President Bush was a man I respected after becoming the director of CIA, through his all-to-short presidency, and his continued gracefulness in retirement from politics. This production by American Experience is very, very well done, and is nothing short of inspiring. History will treat this President Bush well, and PBS has done him justice. If you're looking for an inspiring story of a modern-day role model, you might consider this biography of George H.W. Bush."
Tribute to an Underrated President
Richard Walters | New Mexico | 05/08/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The "American Experience" rarely disappoints me, and this is no exception. In my opinion George H W Bush has been wrongly cast aside in comments by political gurus on the effectiveness of recent presidents. Serving in the wake of Ronald Reagan, this is understandable. However, the accomplishments of this good man both before and during his presidency deserve reconsideration in view of our recent history. This film accurately portrays him and should leave the viewer with a renewed sense of his quiet greatness. History will one day look back on his years in the White House with admiration."
