This hilarious collection of bedtime stories for grown-ups is the perfect antidote to the upcoming State of the Union address. In fact, the producer of POONA (2002, 120 minutes) was booted out of a top-level job at the National Endowment for the Arts by the Bush administration. He had the gall to produce this film that The Stranger called "smart, bold and insightful ... not to mention shit-yourself-hysterical!" Follow Poona's twisted path to the Kingdom of Do (where no one does), whose clueless voters elect a TV set as their ruler (any resemblance to recent elections is purely coincidental). Meet The Man Who Could Sell Anything (did you say Karl Rove?) and God (who will answer any question for $5). The Chicago Tribune hailed POONA as "equal parts funny, angry, imaginative, crude and hopelessly over-the top."
