Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004)

Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004, USA) C-122m. ** D: Michael Moore. Radical, deliberately one-sided documentary which looks at none other than the U.S. president and his role in the crisis following the World Trade Center attacks of 2001 and subsequent Iraq war. Tries to poke fun at the controversial figure of George W. Bush and reveal him as a kind of jack-ass, but often also works against itself, as you wonder why Moore never gives his 'victim' the chance to defend himself. If most of what the director accuses him of is true, then one can only shake one's head at Bush's re-election in 2004. No matter what your political persuasion is, you will find the pictures of war atrocities in Iraq difficult to stomach. Winner of the Grand Prize in Cannes.
