There's nothing sadder than an aging hipster. That's why I've been so uncool all these years.

Farenheit 9/11

Go see the movie. There's so much already said about this, I'm not going to even bother to try to convince you. You just have to see it.

I will, however, use the words of Fox News.

Someone who works for FOX NEWS actually gave F-9/11 a GLOWING REVIEW! Seeing how Fox helped Bush steal the election with Bush's first cousin pulling the strings, I wonder if this poor reviewer is about to be fired:
Check out the review: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,122680,00.html

Quote from the review that says it all:
More than even "The Passion of the Christ," "F9/11" is going to be a "see it for yourself" movie when it hits theaters on June 25. It simply cannot be missed, and I predict it will be a huge moneymaker.

Quote from the review for people who didn't like Bowling for Columbine:
As much as some might try to marginalize this film as a screed against President George Bush, "F9/11" — as we saw last night — is a tribute to patriotism, to the American sense of duty* —* and at the same time a indictment of stupidity and avarice.

Readers of this column may recall that I had a lot of problems with Moore's "Bowling for Columbine," particularly where I thought he took gratuitous shots at helpless targets such as Charlton Heston. "Columbine" too easily succeeded by shooting fish in a barrel, as they used to say.

Not so with "F9/11," which instead relies on lots of film footage and actual interviews to make its case against the war in Iraq and tell the story of the intertwining histories of the Bush and bin Laden families.

Saw it. Dug the second half of the film better'n the first. It's not that he lies, but he presents the facts in a way where he wants you to jump to certain conclusions even though the evidence is only circumstantial. Not to say there aren't ties between the Bin Ladens, Saudis and Bush, but I think the situation is much more complicated than what he presents.
