I found this movie to be surprising, dark, sad, and moving. It is certainly a challenging quasi-documentary film. I don't think this film is a pure documentary per se, but more a movie in a documentary style. Although it does provides accurate and terrible truth. I had no idea we are living in a very bleak world until I watched this movie.
A documentary film about United States of America political propaganda before, during, and after the event of September 11 2001 of Terrorist Attacks and the War of Iraq. It illustrates how the President George W. Bush and the American government have failed to take immediate actions to defend the nation, only to manipulate it, especially by media from Fox News, to serve the wealthy businessmen and oil industries corrupt ambitions. Through facts, footages, and interviews it showing the contention of Bush administration has gotten America into worse trouble than ever before. Directed by Michael Moore.
There is no doubt that this film is biased against George W. Bush and his administration; however, the information is irrefutable and cannot be ignored. I am not American and of course I am biased too. But to quote Neil Cavuto from Fox News, "Am I slanted and biased? You damn well bet I am!", I'm just gonna shrug it. I lived in USA for quite some time, and I was there during the 9/11 tragedy. I experienced the whole thing too and felt how my heart was devastated, and believe that everyone's lives would never be the same. To learn that Bush is in a position to tolerate the appearance of impropriety, is sicken me. Everyone knew back then he was doing a shitty job running the country, and yet people still voted for him. How sad to see the footages of families from America and Iraq in deep grief. This movie shows a powerful juxtaposition of destructions by the terrorists and also from the Bush Administration. This movie really open my eyes about how power really works, and how people are so incredibly fucking gullible.
Personally, I think Michael Moore's "Bowling for Columbine" was more favorable and more witty. In this movie, he let the footages and the interviews speaks for themselves, and it is more heartbreaking. I was crying so much in this movie, especially when a woman who was pro-war years ago because she was patriotic, had to faced the horrible truth about the war, and my heart went with her as she was pleading for the truth. I've heard that Moore was lying most of the time. I think those people just cannot handle the truth. This movie doesn't answer all questions, but it raises our awareness. Moore is good at presenting human drama. We are losing a bit of our soul each time people dies: "I've always been amazed that the very people forced to live in the worst parts of town, go to the worst schools, and who have it the hardest, are always the first to step up, to defend that very system. They serve so that we don't have to. They offer to give up their lives so that we can be free. It is remarkable — their gift to us. And all they ask for in return, is that we never send them into harm's way unless it's absolutely necessary. Will they ever trust us again?"
Due to my hectic schedule, I will not be able to review all new movies every week. I apologize. I will however review some older movies from DVDs from time to time. Thank you for understanding.
