MOVIE REVIEWS - Fahrenheit 9/11
by Rocky Ramsey
documentary analyzes Fahrenheit 9/11 point by point. It's
not just a dispute of the facts in Fahrenheit 9/11, it
has interviews with people who appeared in Fahrenheit
9/11 who either felt mislead by Michael Moore or didn't
know that they would be in his movie at all.
FahrenHYPE 9/11 begins with Michael Moore declaring "There
is no terrorist threat," which sets the tone for
Near the end of FahrenHYPE 9/11 there is a discussion
about Fahrenheit 9/11 as propaganda and how it compares
to Nazi propaganda films. When Fahrenheit 9/11 was shown
in Poland, Polish reviewers raised similar points. After
seeing the unrealistic portrayal of Baghdad in Fahrenheit
9/11, it's no wonder that people feel this way.
If someone did a documentary about World War II and all
they included about Nazi Germany prior to D-Day was images

any mention of the concentration camps, I think it would
strike most people as
That's basically what Michael Moore did with happy images
of people in Baghdad prior to the US-led invasion of Iraq
with no mention of the thousands of Kurds Saddam killed
with chemical weapons or the hundreds of thousands of
people found in mass graves.
Democrats and people who didn't support President Bush
before 9/11 are interviewed in FahrenHYPE 9/11 for their
take on Michael Moore and Fahrenheit 9/11.
Democrat and former New York mayor Ed Koch speaks about
the arrogance of Michael Moore after the 9/11 attacks.
Dick Morris, political advisor to Bill Clinton, speaks
about many misrepresentations of Fahrenheit 9/11 that
actually happened under Bill Clinton's watch, not Bush's.
Democratic activist Ron Silver narrates the movie.
If you want to know the facts behind Fahrenheit 9/11,
this is a good place to start. I think its important
to watch Fahrenheit 9/11 first, then watch FahrenHYPE
Theres no doubt these movies are going to get people
talking and I dont think thats a bad thing,
unless it causes people to hit each other over the head
with big loaves of French bread.
