Michael Moore for Fahrenheit 911.
That’s right, this year’s Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival goes to the guy who brought us Bowling for Columbine and who now is showing us what went on behind the scenes in the Bush administration during and after September 11th, 2001.
The next year is sure to be packed with feverish debate over the film’s veracity, Moore’s credibility, and what his footage and interviews reveal.
Clearly, beyond America’s borders, anything that makes Bush look like a fool is going to be well-received. Rather than jumping to judge Moore and his film as many will do, I’m simply anxious to see it for myself to decide if it’s a piece of leftie-propaganda, or if it’s responsibly and fairly made. Is it just one guy’s opinion, backed up by whoever he could get to agree with him? Or is it news, drawn together from a careful and thorough examination of the facts?We’ll see.
