Fahrenheit 9/11

I saw Fahrenheit 9/11 last night, like a lot of folks. I watched it at the River Oaks cinema; Wes said that he saw it last night at the Edward's Cinema; yesterday Dad said they were going to see it in Shreveport because the good liberal folk of Shreveport banded together and petitioned the distributor in Dallas to screen a copy in that oft-forgotten market.

I didn't go expecting much, as I was dismayed by Bowling for Columbine. However, a day later I am still thinking of Fahrenheit 9/11 and am still favorably impressed. It still is a Michael Moore film; it still is infused with gotcha rather than thoughtfulness. However, it seems a remarkably more mature work. While it does not fully address the topics it looks toward, it serves as a new lens in which to view recent history.
