this is a very good response that Roger Ebert gave to someone in response to a Moore slight
Roger Ebert definitely knows his film theory, and he's one of the few film critics that I regularly agree with. I even agree with his criticisms of Moore's films, in this instance.

Moores ads are all about distribution, Hezbollah offered to assist distribution in the ME, Moores distributor said that it wouldnt turn down such assistance. Michael Moore himslef doesn't support Hezbollah but Hezbollah surely supports Michael Moore hence in a forum about distribution problems the joke was legitimate.

Frankly I would be more concerned with politicaly aligned groups funding ads that exploit 9/11 for political advantage rather than advertisments for a film with a very overt political message and an R rating.
