Farenheit 9/11

Finally got around to watching Farenheit 9/11 on Friday night. Michael Moore isn’t everyone’s ‘cup of tea’ (I was a little irritated by his style in Stupid White Men, for example) but he actually maintains quite a low profile in this film, leaving the limelight to the main character, President George W. Bush. It is a ‘must see’ movie although I did find the whole thing rather distressing. I watched it in a Dublin movie theatre and, needless to say, there was a very sympathetic audience (complete with a ripple of applause at the end!) The more important question, of course, will be how the film will be received in the US.
