Coming Soon: Review: Fahrenheit 9/11

Fahrenheit 9/11 - Coming Soon! Movie Reviews: "When Michael Moore gave his infamous acceptance speech at the 2003 Oscars railing against the burgeoning war in Iraq and the 'fictitious president' starting a war for 'fictitious reasons', little did we know that he had just kicked off the promotional campaign for his latest documentary, Fahrenheit 9/11.

The Bottom Line:
Fahrenheit 9/11 isn't necessarily a great film, and it's not particularly entertaining unless you're someone who wakes up early on Sunday to watch the political shows. It is a well done though somewhat pointed documentary, and Moore's ability to find and assemble vast amounts of data and information and spin them into his own personal one-man anti-Bush propaganda is impressive. Still, the movie doesn't leave you thinking that Bush is bad or evil, as the media might have you believe, but it does create a powerful message that WAR is bad and that maybe our beloved leader isn't exactly the best person to be deciding when and with whom we should be waging it. Whether or not you agree with Moore's opinion or his interpretation of the data isn't as important as the way it takes an intensive look at the state of our government. For that alone, it demands to be seen by every American."
