5.0 out of 5 stars I Loved "Karl Rove, I Love You" 8 July 2009
By Jonathan Browning - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
In the last few years I have been lucky enough to attend a number of film festivals across the world. This has given me an opportunity to see "Indie Films" that aren't always accessible in your local movie theatre. "Karl Rove, I Love You" is an example of one such film.

Funny, sad, biting and original are just some of the words used to describe one man's journey into the heart of Karl Rove. Dan Butler, best known for his sports fanatic persona on Frasier, is a spectacular actor who is given an opportunity to not only shine but glow in this film.

Shot in the form of a documentary, the line between reality and fiction are continually blurred. Rather than playing for cheap laughs, the film always takes the road less traveled and allows the audience to take the journey with Dan. Is Karl Rove a misunderstood man with a huge heart or is he the icy devil pulling the strings of the Bush Administration? When Dan sets out to expose Rove for the evil spirit that he is (by doing a one-man show about it) his mission changes and things get...well, complicated and weird. (In a delightful way.)

Films like this are made outside of the "studio circle" for a reason. They take chances and give us an opportunity to see something other than a cookie cutter project with the same four familiar faces. While the goal of "Hollywood Blockbusters" is to make as much money as possible, in order to recoup their budgets. Films like this one are often labors of love that are created because someone wants to share a story with the audience. The biting satire, "Karl Rove, I Love You" is incredibly entertaining but it is also so much more.

And thanks so places like Amazon, everyone will have an opportunity to see this wonderful film. Check it out!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Spinal Tap of political figure idoltry mockumentaries 12 July 2009
By mispeled - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
It would be easy to take this film at its premise and enjoy it solely for its unique hook: actor Dan Butler ("Bulldog" from TV's Frasier), upon discovering his physical resemblance to Republican political bulldog Karl Rove, embarks on a journey to mount a one-man show starring himself as Rove. Along the way, this openly gay actor discovers Rove the man, who ostensibly stands against everything Butler and his circle of biased Hollywood cronies believe in, is someone entirely different than he originally set out to skewer. To view the film this way is to have an enjoyable evening rental at home, but you would be missing so much more that is going on in this unique and subtle satire.

From the opening moments when mostly unseen documentarian Phil Leirness professes his fanaticism for onscreen actor Butler's work, we are in a world of hyper realistic commentary on the culture of celebrity intimacy as the de rigueur in today's society. At a time when we all feel we were close and knew Michael Jackson when he passed without ever having spent one second of time with him in reality, so too does this film magnify the absurdity of human connection with public figures known only to us by the media. Yet it seems so natural, which is why the film works - it seems perfectly normal for Butler to proclaim is love for a man who may actually be, in reality, someone who just might be out to kill him.

The celebrity of politics, the politics of filmmaking, the paranoia of an America where the government may be just as bad as the "bad guys" all are fair play for satire in this pic that can be paired with the best of the Christopher Guest mockumentaries, and what makes it so astonishing is just how believable this completely fictional tale is. Set aside the rental and purchase this film. It demands multiple viewings to get all the jokes, and it also asks the viewer to take a very real and serious look at what it really means to know someone, to love someone, to be the person that you are so that you are loved, and what the consequences can be if we continue to defer that love away from those who are really with us to those who are in the public eye.
1.0 out of 5 stars Is this really a movie? 30 Oct 2013
By Quark Kid - Published on Amazon.com
This is your goofy cousin taking a camera to writers meetings and turning it on and then calling it a movie. I was hoping for an intelligent satire about Karl Rove that entertained and provided some additional knowledge on Rove. I got nothing form this movie in terms of humor or info about Rove. A complete waste of time . . . and I am easily entertained.

5.0 out of 5 stars smart, funny film 11 July 2009
By Film Fan Scot - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
this is a smart, funny film that will keep you entertained and laughing. I think it is the best indie/festival film I have seen with good acting, great dialog (one line zingers you can miss if not paying attention) and a masterful, creative set-up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Karl Rove, I Love You = Magical Madness 10 July 2009
By Nicole A. Dalton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
As I went to see the movie "Karl Rove, I Love You," I realized I had no idea what to expect from this film. I took my seat, the lights went down, and for the next 97 minutes I embarked on the twisted and magical journey of loving Karl Rove. It never failed to surprise or delight. The acting is pitch perfect and the directing/storytelling is so imaginative and always leaves one guessing. Truly a love story of unspeakable acts. I am so glad that no one told me what the movie was about because one must experience "Karl Rove" for themselves. It is a magical ride.
