New York Daily News - DVD Digest: Bush's bogey

New York Daily News - DVD Digest: Bush's bogey: "Fahrenheit 9/11,' Michael Moore's anti-Bush, anti-war op-ed movie, is Tuesday's big DVD release (Columbia TriStar, 122 mins., R, $28.95) and the John Kerry camp is probably pleased about that.
The documentary - poignant, funny and disturbing - follows the President's progress from his disputed 2000 election victory through his handling of the Sept. 11 attacks and launching of the war in Iraq. It was timely when it had its debut at May's Cannes Film Festival (where it won the top prize) and is even more so now.
The DVD extras are few but worthwhile: a montage on the movie's reception (with praise from Cannes jury president Quentin Tarantino, among others); a deleted sequence of G.I.s raiding an Iraqi home; war mom Lila Lipscomb's appearance at a 'Fahrenheit' premiere; a segment about Arab-American comedians; National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice's testimony before the 9/11 Commission; President Bush emerging from an unrecorded, untranscribed three-hour 'meeting' with the commission."
