Fahrenheit 9/11 by Michael Moore

In today's review at The New York Times: Fahrenheit 9/11 by A. O. SCOTT, a very fresh and engaged film critic discusses the powerful film that opens this week in the USA.

Mr. Scott criticizes some of Michael Moore traits but points out that Fahrenheit 9/11 "is worth seeing, debating and thinking about, regardless of your political allegiances."

He concludes his article in a very compelling manner: "The most moving sections of "Fahrenheit 9/11" concern Lila Lipscomb, a cheerful state employee and former welfare recipient who wears a crucifix pendant and an American flag lapel pin. When we first meet her, she is proud of her family's military service — a daughter served in the Persian Gulf war and a son, Michael Pedersen, was a marine in Iraq — and grateful for the opportunities it has offered. Then Michael is killed in Karbala, and in sharing her grief with Mr. Moore, she also gives his film an eloquence that its most determined critics will find hard to dismiss. Mr. Bush is under no obligation to answer Mr. Moore's charges, but he will have to answer to Mrs. Lipscomb."
