Movie review: Lights, camera, politics!

Movie review: Lights, camera, politics!: "One thing on which the man of the moment and his critics can agree: Michael Moore is shameless.
The naysayers claim that the filmmaker, whose Bush-bashing 'Fahrenheit 9/11' opens today, is a manipulative sneak who weaves misleading innuendo into his message as he edits out context.
Moore sees himself as a weapon of mass instruction who has nothing to be ashamed about.
Pre-release hoopla and outrage have nearly eclipsed the film itself. First, Disney refused to distribute the hot potato, and Miramax had initial trouble getting any other studios to burn their fingers, either. After 'Fahrenheit' won top honors at Cannes, Lion's Gate and IFC extended their embrace."
