'Fahrenheit' heats up the debate

'Fahrenheit' heats up the debate: "While 'Fahrenheit 9/11' alternates between enraging, enlightening and frightening, it also meanders. It's as if Moore knows he's got some good stuff, and can't bear to throw out anything, even if it causes the film to lose its focus. An interview with a grieving mother who has lost her son in the war is both intrusive and powerful.
Still, the confrontational Moore meets his goal in the same way Mel Gibson did with 'The Passion of the Christ.' He takes familiar material (but maybe not to all), gives it his own imprint, using humor and sly digs, plus wittily appropriate music, to tell an important story in a way that's sure to have a profound impact on moviegoers."
