Waxing Moon, Waning Moore

Crowning of the Rev. Moon as King of Peace by our National Reps… and Disney not letting Miramax release Moore’s new con-Bush film. I wonder if they have enough stake in the IP of the movie to keep it from release for six months!

Waxing Moon, Waning Moore …

I’m waiting for the librarians to intervene on Michael Moore’s behalf again …

Moore seems to have been vindicated by the court of the movie-buying public. Huge queues in SF and NY last weekend were to be expected — but I have reports of the same in Richmond, VA. Gosh.

I was pleased that Moore has taken greater care with the facts and logical consistency than he did in BfC. Certainly there are nits one could pick, but I also give him credit for the excellent use of an Eric Clapton riff (from “Cocaine”) while showing Bush’s mysterious avoidance of a medical exam on his military record. Classic.

Ooh, I didn’t catch that. How delightful… it was good filmmaking, good storytelling, and almost-palatable documentary. I happened to see Capturing the Friedmans right afterwards, and was reminded that truly great documentary can also be good story-telling.

As an aside, I doubt they were really surprised at their R rating, considering the profanity and graphic images of the dead and wounded…
