Director: Michael MooreFahrenheit 9/11USA.Winner of the Palme d'Or and FIPRESCI prize at this year's Cannes Film Festival, Michael Moore's (Bowling for Columbine) blistering film takes a look at the state ofAmerica today and the role played by the Bush 'dynasty'. From the controversy surrounding the 2000 US presidential election to the attacks on September 11 2001, through to the conflicts in Afghanistan and the present situation in Iraq, Moore's polemical agitprop documentary uses cinema as a political weapon like never before.
'a provocative, manipulative, funny, shocking and completely unmissable letter from America in which Moore is as deadly as any Weapon of Mass Destruction'told with passion and cutting sarcasm, the film has a good deal of the Moore trademarks, from a deft use of various television and pop culture clips to embarrassing encounters with the great and the good. Moore is mischievous as ever'at one point he tries to convince members of congress to encourage their children to enlist and fight in the war.The irony and childish iconoclasm are still there but this is a film in which an adult sense of anger and frustration also dominate.' -screen International D/P/S Michael Moore WS Wild Bunch TD 35mm/Col/2004/115minsMichael Moore was born in Flint, USA in 1954.
