Since the topsy-turvy election of 2000, many Americans have puzzled over the question: If George W. Bush is as dumb as he sometimes appears to be, how did he ever become President? Though the 2004 documentary “Bush’s Brain” might not necessarily have the answer, it certainly provides an answer, and a pretty substantial one.

Based on the book by James C. Moore and Wayne Slater, Bush’s Brain: How Karl Rove Made George W. Bush Presidential, and made with their avid cooperation, “Bush’s Brain” is a portrait of Karl Rove, the political consultant behind Bush’s election who apparently has become as heavily involved in Bush administration policymaking—international perhaps even more than domestic—as he was with politicking. Compared to “Fahrenheit 9/11,” the film is fairly restrained in its presentation of a story that is frightening enough in its factual details.
