Thoroughly enjoyed it.
Ward Churchill, the fake American Indian, is a “leading intellectual”?
Where can we go to find out the schedule of showing times, theatres, etc.?

I just saw it. This movie is a refreshing reprieve from the depressing Obamanation. The speech Bono gives about America near the end is itself worth the price of admission alone.

i.e., they are doing all they can to ignore it while they promote numerous less popular films, all of which are meaningless pap.
