Fahrenheit 9/11 gets help offer from Hezbollah
and nooooooo, this movie is not propaganda
Thursday June 17, 2004
The controversy over Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11 just won't go away. The film, which is being advertised with the strapline "Controversy? What controversy?", has been rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America, meaning no one under 17 can see it unless accompanied by an adult. Distributors Lions Gate Films and IFC Films, opening the film next week, are appealing against the decision. The rating came partly because the film shows images of US soldiers abusing Iraqi prisoners, images Moore says he had long before the scandal erupted. He told Associated Press he kept quiet because he thought he'd be accused of "just putting this out for publicity for my movie".
Anger at Moore is building up, too. Pro-military lobby group Move America Forward is campaigning to "Stop Michael Moore from profiting in his attacks on America and our military"; Michael Wilson is making a documentary called Michael Moore Hates America; and the website www.moorelies.com is out "to expose America's fakest pseudo-muckraker".
Meanwhile, in the United Arab Emirates, the film is being offered the kind of support it doesn't need. According to Screen International, the UAE-based distributor Front Row Entertainment has been contacted by organisations related to the Hezbollah in Lebanon with offers of help. All in all, Tony Blair must be relieved that Moore is not going to make a film about him; Moore rebuffed the rumour in a message on his website headlined: "Sorry to scare you, Tony. Michael Moore was just kidding."

If you get a chance to see the movie see it and form your own opinion. It is hard to see because every showing seems to be sold out. Good luck.

Great movie, just saw it. Everything was true. Entire audience did a standing ovation at the end of the movie.

Everyone has an agenda, and moore peddles this garbage to get his left wing agenda heard.

I'm basing my opinion off his past exploits, and everything he does is propaganda. Believe nothing that you hear, and only half of what you see!

You CANT call Michael Moore's 9/11 movie "propaganda" fairly unless you also say that the handful of American media outlets are also propaganda. IF our supposed "liberal media" was just that, wouldn't they have had an endless parade of news stories on Bush-Saudi ties and scandalous bussiness dealings of Halliburton in Iraq. What moore covers in the movie is certaily more news worthy than f***** stain on an intern's blue dress.

American media outlets propagandize all the time - notice they focus on every bad thing in Iraq - have you seen any of our successes there? hardly any, and yet there have been quite a few

Bowling For Columbine was an attack on the american gun policy, it was a great movie.

I watched BfC (liked it) but felt it was more about American attitudes towards violence.
