is like watching the longest two-hour paid political advertising
announcement ever made against the Bush administration.
Michael Moore's trademark humor, creative
editing, and timing techniques make for a one-sided unfair and
slanted opinion--from a wide array of video clips cleverly put
together out of sequence.
Michael Moore also makes no bones about
not being fair and balanced, makes a case just from his own views,
and invites us to agree with him or not.
I sure do not.
Using a dizzying array of stunts, music,
interviews, news footage, and quick-cut editing techniques, Michael
Moore assembles a political diatribe that will either have you
laughing out loud, or wiping that silly grin off your face for
Is it biased? You bet it is; it was put
together by a liberal humorist.
But what he lacks in journalism, he more
than makes up for in political satire.
But don't take my word for it; go see it
and decide for yourself.
Judging the worth of a debatable political
movie is a tricky business.
This picture's convincing information and
circumstantial evidence provided no opportunities for debates
or dialogue, which I found disappointing.
But it is visually powerful. It was sometimes
amusing and shocking.
This is one you have to see for yourself.
