Farenheit 9/11

Well, this weekend I went and saw Farenheit 9/11 at the urging of a few friends. Hummm....

A few years ago mother sent me Michael Moore's "Stupid White Men ...and Other Sorry Excuses for the State of the Nation!" Don't get me wrong, I'm not a big supported of George W. Bush, but all this book did was convince me that Michael Moore was a bitter, blithering idiot. I only read part of each chapter before I got disgusted with it and put it down. Michael: Get over it! A lot of people did not like it, but George W. Bush WON the election.

At the end of movie, my roommate, Matt, commented that the movie certainly could not be considered a documentary. It was way too one-sided. I agree.

What does concern me is how factual the information is in that movie. Most of the information, I did know already. Including the information about the bin Laden family being 'escorted' out of the country on Sept 12 (when all airlines were grounded.) The Bush families business associations with a number of Saudi families does trouble me though. There was a number of things that Michael Moore did leave out that I wondered by, including anything about Neil Bush.

Anyway, if you are a hard-core Democrat, you will probably love this movie. If you are a hard-core Republican, you won't make it through the first 10 minutes. Those of us in the 'moderate middle' are kind of left scratching our heads and wondering how much of it is truly factual.
