So Allan and I went to see Fahrenheit 9/11.
Ordinarily I hate films which have been hyped as much as this. I went anyway (partly to see what the fuss was all about and partly to see if it was going to be as bad as I thought).
I was suprised. It was biased yes. It was a shameless attack on bush and the US government. However it was also truly shocking. despite knowing it must have been edited to be far worse than it was the fact that he had so much footage to edit down was bad in itself.
Bush needed no help in looking foolhardy or stupid. The US government needed no help looking corrupt to the core.
I’d heartily recommend this film to anyone. I’d caution though that you will come out wondering how on earth we let people like this run the western world and make decisions on our behalf.
You will no doubt be as shocked as everyone in our audience by the news that most bills passed inthe US are not read by the politicians emplyed to do so.
