Entertaining, Emotional, NOT a Documentary
Even when you pull out tiny truths in the overpublicized gossip that streams through Michael Moore's film, you never get a sense that his complete view on the subject of the War on Terrorism is anything other than anger and resentment. With most of the film's positive criticism actually coming from Moore himself, it disturbs me to think that this flick could become anything more than some left-wing sliver's conspiracy take on the topic. Documentaries tend usually to get a firm grip on what has actually happened, based on facts and found footage on more than one aspect of a situation; in other words an actual 'document' into the events. Moore's offering only supplies the viewer with edited footage and tidbits of comparison videos to get his and only his idea across. Seeing this movie only reminded me of the same sad and pathetic attempts made in "Bowling for Columbine" to blame all of the world's problems on Conservative politics. It also reminds me of propaganda; which, oddly enough, is shunned by Moore and other "Fahrenheit" zealouts whenever it seems to appear as the voice of any average corporation. By all means, if you think the flick is good, call it a good flick. But if it endorses an idea so obviously tainted by the filmmaker, it is NOT a Documentary and shouldn't be honored as such.
