something everyone should see

fahrenheit 9/11

go and see it when it comes out near you. I saw it in America on Friday - and I'll be very disappointed for the knowledge of all those of us who dont watch it. I think its an incredibly important film, and I think many of us are walking around ignorant to what's really going on today, but this film will change that.

    i intend seeing it at the earliest possible opportunity.
    most of ythe stuff i've heard about it has been regularly discussed in the politics forum ...especialy the close partnership between the bush family and bin laden family.
    scary stuff!
    you still over there or what then?

    i was going to put it in politics and debate and write exactly what I thought about it, and put in some of the things that happen in the film, but then i figured that not everyone goes in that forum, and this really is something everyone should see, and the majority of people go to anything goes so it seemed the most logical of places to write about it.

    mr roll no Im back now, landed this morning and got back early afternoon - absolutely knackered but Im determined to stay up so I dont get any worse jet lag than what I have to!

    anything good happen whilst I was gone?

    Its alright to use Klite for the odd music file or whatever, but when it comes to software etc... not a chance.

    everything in that movie was changed to make it look bad,and wrong.nothing in that movie is true to the way he says it is,it is just a guy trying to bring our country down.i would never go see anything like that as not to support someone who is willing to change and lie about those type of serious things

    i dont agree with a single word of that.

    I am quite open to the fact that the film is biased, as are all movies, because they are a very small group of opinions that have been put together in order to form a particular emotion within its audience.

    But I dont believe that it is biased to a point where it is untrue. And it hasn't shifted my opinion one bit - I thought George Bush was a twat before, now I just think he's an even bigger twat.

    How can you possibly comment if you've not even seen it?!

    I didnt go and see the film in order to come out saying 'i hate george bush and all that he says is lies', and that is certainly not what I wanted to come out thinking at all, however when you are exposed to some truths that you've not known about before, you are bound to look at things in a different light from what you maybe did before. And that man does lie - we all know he does.

    None of us here can possibly know whether 100% of that film is truthful or not, but I know that I saw a film where the president made himself look like a complete and utter idiot. I know this film was edited - but michael moore doesn't dictate what to say the george bush - george bush brings all this on himself.

    It's rather strange to cast a judgement over something without knowing anything about it though isn't it?

    The film was deliberately biased and one-sided, but he couldn't have published a pack of lies, or he would have been sued.

    How do you know what is a lie and what is not if your mind is not even open to the prospect of going to see the film?

    I wouldnt bother argueing Mist, it says she is from Texas which is the state George W 'Fucking Moron' Bush is Governer of.

    I cannot wait for it to come out over here though, next Friday i beleive.

    Michael Moore is offering $10,000 if you can find any factual errors in the film.

    I want to see this film so badly. But alas, they only play the major hits in this crummy little town so it probably won't even be in theaters here ever. ho hum :( I do adore Michael Moore though.

    Saw it last night, thought it was a bad first half, afraid to define itself as socialist and at times xenophobic.

    However once the Iraq section begins it's a completely different film - superb and powerful. I couldn't recommend it highly enough.
