10 years of Flick Filosopher: more Moore

Ah, Michael Moore: always a troublemaker. And thank God. From my review of Fahrenheit 9/11:

Moore doesn’t break any news here; there are no facts presented here that anyone who reads muckraking political blogs and foreign newspapers and doesn’t rely solely on Anderson Cooper for their news doesn’t already know. It’s in the way that Moore presents it that’s devastating… even to someone like me, who was with Moore all the way even before I saw the film. I learned nothing new from Fahrenheit 9/11, but it floored me with its passionate — okay, scathingly vicious — but well-documented critique of the indisputable behavior and backgrounds of Bush and Co. Call the film an interpretation of the facts if you must, if it makes you feel better, but it’s an interpretation Sherlock Holmes would approve of: When you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be true.
