Naomi Watts and Sean Penn star in 'Fair Game.'

The recent release of former President George W. Bush’s memoir "Decision Points" has people reviewing many of the pivotal moments in his administration. His decision to invade Iraq is one such moment. It’s a move still embroiled in controversy for many reasons, including whether the administration deliberately outed a CIA agent as it made its case for war. Now that agent, Valerie Plame, is the subject of a new film "Fair Game."

To find out if the film fairly represents the recent history of American foreign policy, Eight Forty-Eight turned to its hawkish dove, Hank Sartin. He also reviewed TYler Perry's latest "For Colored Girls."

Sartin is the editor of Time Out Chicago’s film section among other things. He regularly joins Eight Forty-Eight with bucketfuls of movie wisdom.

"Fair Game" is now playing at select Chicago locations.  It opens nation-wide Nov. 19.
 
"For Colored Girls" is in theaters now.
