George W. Bush

Though he is still alive, 43rd President of the United States George W. Bush received the biopic treatment in the 2008 film W, with director Oliver Stone at the helm. Stone is behind other presidential films, including J.F.K. and Nixon. The film became a controversial topic due to its main subject being one of the most outrageously infamous US presidents of all time.
