Saw this super long post about how Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11 wasn’t that good of a film today, while I was looking at some other stuff. I dunno. To be honest, I didn’t read Burke’s post as closely as perhaps I should have, but I have to say, I still liked the Moore movie. What I’m getting at is I’ve read/heard/seen a fair amount of criticism about Moore’s movie since I saw it a few weeks ago. A lot of it is even legitimate criticism, too. Moore isn’t really “fair and balanced;” but then again, the network that has a copyright on that phrase isn’t exactly “fair and balanced” either.
I’m going to stick to what I wrote on my old unofficial blog back at the end of June: sure, there are some things that are problematic about Fahrenheit 9/11, but I still think it’s Moore’s best movie and I also think the essence of what Moore is saying is dead-on accurate. Just thought I’d post a reminder of that.
