I saw Moore on The Daily Show last night and he was not an ass. In fact, he stated flat out that the facts are the facts, and are irrefutable, but the opinion delivered in the movie is completely his own. So I liked that he's not touting it as The Whole Truth, but rather an arrangement of the facts to present his opinion. I can respect that even if I don't particularly care for him.

I'm hoping it goes to video soon so I can watch it. The clip they showed actually looked pretty funny. And policy/evil/etc aside, Bush the man has the same unfortunate talent for handing himself over on a platter to this kind of humor that Quayle had. It should be pretty entertaining regardless of the message.

I think it’s great that someone has enough courage to take a stand like this, in the face of the right-wing extremists who control the current administration, and whose propaganda machine tries to roll over all instances of patriotic dissent like a corporate-controlled juggernaut made of blood money.

I can’t wait to see to Mr. Moore’s film, and I salute him as a true patriot who is fighting to save an America that is losing its soul to greed, materialism, and fascism.

'Fahrenheit 9/11' breaks records

LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11" took in a whopping $21.8 million in its first three days, becoming the first documentary ever to debut as Hollywood's top weekend film.

If Sunday's estimates hold when final numbers are released Monday, "Fahrenheit 9/11" would set a record in a single weekend as the top-grossing documentary ever outside of concert films and movies made for huge-screen IMAX theaters.

Adding the film's haul at two New York City theaters where it opened Wednesday, two days earlier than the rest of the country, boosted "Fahrenheit 9/11" to $21.96 million.

I've yet to see it, but as they say, I will someday !

I just watched a great interview on tv with Moore, I think someone posted a thread on it here, going to check it out..

I would like to hear from the ATS members who said six weeks ago that there would be a struggle to find distribution for this film.

But I do think it is over the top to have a whole discussion forum based around one documentary. The rationale may be that it is topical and that this discussion will bring people to ATS, but when all is said and done it is one film. I wonder why there is no Star Wars forum or Gone With The Wind forum and why we were meant to contain all discussions about 9/11 to one thread a few months back.

Oh well. Over to the librarians...

in the interview with Moore,

he said, he's surprised that he is able to do these documentaries, as he's actually a shy person.

I had no idea how he got his start either, go check it out for yourselves, it's quite interesting.
