I saw it last night. I knew most of the information going in, but...I cried several times. I thought it may just be pregnancy hormones, but when I looked at my 25 year old brother, he had tears streaming down his face, too. The Iraq footage was really hard to watch (but I'm glad it was there) and the audio-only September 11th was also very moving and powerful. And the Congress scene! My heart broke for every single House member who tried their hardest.
AND....the seven minutes he spent in that classroom, reading "My Pet Goat" after the second plane had hit the tower....his expressions.....his lack of response to the situation.....it was appalling and heart-wrenching. WAITING to be *told* what to do. Waiting when he is the leader of the free world. Doing nothing. Just sitting there. For seven minutes.
But I also laughed hysterically at some parts. I admit it was wonderful and refreshing to see Bush making a complete and total fool of himself. No, Moore didn't have to do anything with voice overs. It was just footage of Bush being a complete and total moron. You'd have to see it to believe it.
I really thought it was Moore's best documentary to date. I thought it was better than BFC for sure. I do wish he had ended it in another way, though. Maybe revisit Bush the man for a few more minutes, and then end it.
At that ridiculous article sleeping queen posted. I actually laughed out loud when I read it. I personally would be embarassed to have linked such a ridiculous article, but more to the point.....did you actually SEE the movie, sq? Or are you letting this writer make up your mind for you? I only ask because he really doesn't know what he is talking about. At least find someone intelligent and well-informed to speak for you.
