Fahrenheit 9/11 reviewed May. 18th, 2004 10:08 am
It was strident, passionate, sometimes outrageously manipulative and often bafflingly selective in its material, but Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11 was a barnstorming anti-war/anti-Bush polemic tossed like an incendiary device into the crowded Cannes festival.

It included a full-scale denunciation of the links between the Bush and Bin Laden families, the petro-commercial association which allowed dozens of the Bin Laden family to leave the country for Saudi Arabia after 9/11 and which necessitated the Iraq war as a massive diversion.


[Moore] shouts out questions to the president he derisively calls Governor Bush and is rewarded by him with a snarling suggestion that he should get a real job, which takes some effrontery coming from the slacker fratboy head of state who makes Ronald Reagan's workload look Stakhanovite.

The BBC's review is more cautious, unsurprisingly. Some of the quoted links seem dubious (Bush knew a man who's brother sold them a plane?) but I suspect it'll have to be seen before a better conclusion can be drawn.
Regardless, the man's still a chimp.
