What a film! I swear every theatre across Chicago was sold-out for each showing.
Once I was finally in the theatre, the audience's enthusiasm and emotion resounded.
It was unlike anything I have ever before witnessed at the movie theatre, extraordinarily speaking for a documentary film.
I have never heard so many outbursts of clapping and cheering or outrage and anger.
This film seemed to bring out all sides of the emotional spectrum. Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11 really presented a refreshing point of view with different ideas and an unveiling of pertinent facts that had mostly been hidden/covered-up from the general public.
I always find it stunning when I hear revealing facts about governments and persons in politics, in general, just as they are presented here about Bush and his administration.
So, of course, it is biased! It is meant to be! Moore is simply telling a different version of history from a different perspective, a liberal point of view which is most often buried.
Moore has chosen to state his biases forthright in his version of history.
At least he has the guts to expose his ideas and get the globe thinking and reacting. Besides, someone has to cause controversy. It is what keeps society progressing and improving!

Attending the film on opening night, I was hoping that Moore's film would
reveal new condemning information about Bush and his administration.
that, I would have settled with a recap of the well known misadventures of
the Bush Administration. Unfortunately, the film fails to deliver anything except an impassioned
piece of propaganda.
What disturbed me the most was that I went in with a hatred for Bush and
left with something approaching mild respect (what has Moore done?!).
film is filled with such wild accusations, major doses of editing, personal
attacks on Bush, and
a complete disregard for the truth that the film cannot help but make you
dismiss some of the claims...even the legitimate ones.
Take, for example, the horribly misleading scene with Iraqi children playing
in the bright sunshine with kites insinuating that Iraq was a paradise. This
was over-the-top, but then Moore adds the voice over about how Iraq had
never tried to kill US citizens or attacked the US any way.
Moore must have forgotten the first Gulf War, regularly firing on coalition
best line in the film is when Moore directly asks President Bush a question
and Bush responds "Find a real job". I just hope the film does not push
those on the fence to the right instead of the left - shame on you Moore!
