But is that really a valid complaint? By definition, a biography is not plot driven. While there should be some sense of a narrative holding the whole thing together, they're not telling you a story in the traditional sense. You might as well complain that Mr. Holland's Opus doesn't really have a plot.mlsterben wrote:I should probably post the actual review I wrote for the movie, because my only complaint is that the plot seemed nonexistent.

The scenes jumped from Bush's youth to his days as president pretty frequently, and I couldn't draw any parallels, besides the fact that he is slow and kind of lazy. I think I would have preferred if they just went with a straight start-to-finish kind of thing.
