Disclaimer: It’s all over the news, but I’ll repeat it so that I have a handy link to come back later on. :)
Filmmaker and writer Michael Moore, mostly known for his documentary “Bowling for Colombine“, has received a Palme D’Or award – one of the highest filmmaking awards, at 57th Cannes Film Festival for his new documentary “Fahrenheit 9/11“. This new film is strogly anti-Bush. In fact, it is so strong that it was censored and forbidden for distribution in USA.
Here are few links on the subject:
- Slashdot announcement with lots of comments and links to other resources
- Michael Moore’s web site
- Anti Michael Moore’s web site
- Anti anti Michael Moore’s web site…oops. Just an article
My position on this issue: I’ve seen “Bowling for Colombine” several times, I liked it a lot, and I will buy the DVD one day. It made me want to see Moore’s other films and read his books, but I haven’t got a chance to do so yet. I am eagerly awating “Fahrenheit 9/11” to come to a screen/TV/display near me. :)
