Fahrenheit 9/11

I finally had a chance to see Fahrenheit 9/11 yesterday, and I took it; even if my houseguest had been talking about going to see I, Robot all week. As I was the one treating her to this outing, she had very little choice but to grin and bear it, but in the end, she wasn't disappointed -- although now I wonder if I might not have been better entertained if I'd opted for the other film instead. Not that it was bad, mind you -- but it certainly was a lot less light-hearted than I was actually in the mood for. Michael Moore has an axe to grind and grind it, he does...repeatedly. I think I would have gotten the message if the film had been shorter, too. But I'm glad I went to see it: repetitive in part or not, it did help to highlight some things that I hadn't been aware of before, e.g. exactly how closely business and politics are intertwined under Bush's administration. But was it really necessary to show a picture of someone smoking cannabis to introduce The Netherlands in the 'Coalition of the Willing'? We do do other things as well, you know! ;-)
