'Fahrenheit 9/11' Gets Standing Ovation
Tuesday, June 15, 2004
By Roger Friedman
But once "F9/11" gets to audiences beyond screenings, it won't be dependent on celebrities for approbation. It turns out to be a really brilliant piece of work, and a film that members of all political parties should see without fail.

As much as some might try to marginalize this film as a screed against President George Bush, "F9/11" as we saw last night is a tribute to patriotism, to the American sense of duty and at the same time a indictment of stupidity and avarice.

I printed the article so that when Roger Ailes finds it, fires Friedman, and yanks the article that I still have evidence of it being posted on FOXNews.com.

What is a R rated movie ? It seems that this movie has a R rating.

R rated means you have to be 17 years old or older to see the movie, unless you're accompanied by an adult.

Is this move more dangerous for teenagers than rape and violence scenes

I believe the R rating is due to violent images in war footage

The ratings controversy might also be more publicity

http://money.cnn.com/2004/06/16/news...ovie/index.htm

I saw a piece on the news w/ one of the Congressmen he confronts in the movie. I can't remember the details, but he says Moore edited it to make him look like he just had a blank/stupid expression on his face(that this was his only response)..he actually said after it was just cut at that that he would follow up on it. Moore of course said he didn't edit the Congressman out at all, that he never had a speaking part in it, so that's not editing Of course that's just one instance, but I can't help but wonder about how he edited the rest

I think it is clear how Moore has edited the movie.

And the choir he preaches to will relish the editing to help demonize the right. After all, it is only entertainment.

LIES, LIES AND SLANDER!!!

Moore is a patriot who tells it like it is like an enema of truth!!!! He fights against the right wing conspiracy because he is a motivated hero and not because of the huge sums of cash he gets.

It's coming to my town on Friday and the theater was so overwhelmed by phone calls about it that they put advanced tickets on sale today, which they never do, not even for something like LOTR. I just got tickets for Friday night and it's almost sold out.

Terrorist Approved!!

Moore film distributor OK with terror support

The company distributing filmmaker Michael Moore's Bush-bashing movie "Fahrenheit 9/11" says it won't reject an offer of help from Middle East terrorist organization Hezbollah.

What got this to do with the content in the movie ? It seems that the only thing that count for you to discredit the movie because you don`t like it.

I sincerely question the reliability of such a blatantly biased source as "World Net Daily."

They seem to like to write about "vast left-wing conspiracies." Definitely further right-wing than FOX News.
