    Documentary-maker and liberal activist Michael Moore said the reason for mass shootings in the United States is largely due to fear and racism, and on Christmas Eve he pleaded, “calm down, white people, and put away your guns.” In a blog post entitled “Celebrating the Prince of Peace in the Land of Guns,” while still calling for stricter gun-control laws, Moore said such laws will not stop mass killings because of “who we are” as a nation. “We are a country whose leaders officially sanction and carry out acts of violence as a means to often an immoral end,” Moore...

    DETROIT — A federal judge Thursday threw out a libel and defamation lawsuit filed against filmmaker Michael Moore by the brother of Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Nichols. U.S. District Court Judge Paul D. Borman ruled that statements Moore made about James Nichols in the 2002 Bowling for Columbine documentary were "factual and substantially true." James Nichols claimed in the lawsuit that the statements could be misinterpreted by viewers to inaccurately link him to the bombing. He also claimed the film invaded his privacy and inflicted emotional distress. Borman rejected the claims in 25-page page ruling granting Moore's request for...

Every critic I know has received at least one letter like that from an indignant reader. Of course, it's an absurd proposition; critics are paid to express their opinions, and the good ones (who exercise what is known across all disciplines as "critical thinking") are also able to cite examples and employ sound reasoning to build an argument, showing you how and why they reached their verdict. Well, since...

  • Michael Moore draws boos at Republican convention

    Already a box office sensation, filmmaker Michael Moore got another loud reception Monday at the Republican convention. This time, it was boos. When Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., told the delegates about "a disingenuous film maker who would have us believe that Saddam's Iraq was an oasis of peace," they knew he was referring to the maker of "Fahrenheit 9-11." The film, which savages Bush's Iraq policy, has set a box office record for documentaries, grossing $115 million so far. McCain's comments prompted prolonged booing and chants of "Four more years." Many of the delegates faced Moore, who was seated in...

    Boston, Mass — Promoting his movie Fahrenheit 9/11 at the Democratic National Convention, radical filmmaker Michael Moore launched into a shouting, red-faced denunciation of Republicans Tuesday, saying supporters of the GOP are different from "real Americans"; that they are "people who hate"; that they are "up at six in the morning trying to figure out which minority group they're going to screw today"; and that in the upcoming presidential campaign, they "are going to fight...smear...lie...and hate." Moore, who sat in former President Jimmy Carter's box at the convention Monday night, has been welcomed by wildly enthusiastic audiences at his appearances...

    LA Times ^ | June 11 2004 | Michael Finnegan, Times Staff Writer
    Film and Election Politics Cross in 'Fahrenheit 9/11' The marketing of a scathing movie about Bush resembles a race for the White House. There are movie campaigns and there are presidential campaigns, and usually you can tell the difference. One features a red carpet, the other a war room. But "Fahrenheit 9/11," Michael Moore's scathing new documentary about President Bush, has both. Its release later this month appears to mark the first time that a film slamming a major presidential candidate has opened on screens across the nation in the final months of a campaign. At the same time, the...

    Controversial director Michael Moore says big names like Meryl Streep and Martin Scorsese supported his outburst at the 2003 Academy Awards. The Fahrenheit 9/11 film-maker took to the stage at the glitzy ceremony to accept the award for his acclaimed movie Bowling For Columbine, and proceeded to call shame on President George W. Bush's war on Iraq. But, while the media insisted many were infuriated by Moore's speech, the documentary maestro insists he was sent letters of support by many Hollywood 'A' listers - including Jeff Bridges and Jonathan Demme. Moore says, "Some complained about it on TV - James...

    Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11" is designed to promote his personal political agenda. On CNN, he said he hoped the movie would get out the anti-Bush vote. Did Moore give even lip service to views opposite his own? You reported on the reception his film received in Cannes. Given the location, France, and the crowd, journalists, Hollywood movie types and Frenchmen mostly, what did you expect? By praising an obviously politically motivated film, are you simply being a pawn of Moore's own political agenda? Mark Pachankis, Shreveport, La. A. Well of course it's a politically motivated film. That's allowed. President Bush's...

    With the unexpected and overwhelming success of "Bowling for Columbine" and "Stupid White Men," the fiction that has been written or spoken about me and my work has reached a whole new level of storytelling. It's no longer about making some simple errors or calling me "Roger" Moore. It is now about organized groups going full blast trying to discredit me by knowingly making up lies and repeating them over and over in the hopes that people will believe them – and, then, stop listening to me. Oh, that it would be so easy! Fortunately, they are so wound up...

    CANNES, France -- The jury of the 57th Cannes Film Festival insisted Sunday that it awarded its top honor to Michael Moore's anti-Bush documentary not because of its politics, but because of its quality as a film. "We were dealing with reels of film, not politics," said jury president Quentin Tarantino. "We all agreed that 'Fahrenheit 9/11' was the best film." Tarantino and his eight fellow jurors were breaking with 56 years of festival tradition by explaining and defending their selections at a press conference the day after the awards were named. This was not the jury's idea but the...

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The White House calls the film "outrageously false," but Hollywood is hot for "Fahrenheit 9/11," documentary filmmaker Michael Moore's caustic broadside at President Bush. A day after the film won the top Palme d'Or prize at the Cannes Film Festival in France, industry observers on Sunday predicted the controversial movie would be a box office hit, even if some early reviews have hardly been favorable. "I think it will be hugely successful," said D.A. Pennebaker, veteran documentary director whose films include the Oscar-nominated 1992 election campaign saga "The War Room." "It's going to get a lot...

    Fanciful boy wizards and green ogres, move over: Hollywood's about to get serious. As election season heats up, several politically incendiary films are heading to the big screen. From Michael Moore's (search) anti-Bush documentary "Fahrenheit 9/11" to the disaster flick "The Day After Tomorrow," Tinseltown is putting out several movies that touch on hot-button political issues. Election experts are skeptical about films' ability to impact the outcome of a race, but they say these movies do have the potential to rile voters and help mold debates. "I think we can overstate the impact of how many people might see [these...

    Major barf alert! Less is Moore in subdued, effective '9/11' May 18, 2004 BY ROGER EBERT FILM CRITIC CANNES, France -- Michael Moore the muckraking wiseass has been replaced by a more subdued version in "Fahrenheit 9/11," his new documentary questioning the anti-terrorism credentials of the Bush regime. In the Moore version, President Bush, his father and members of their circle have received $1.5 billion from Saudi Arabia over the years, attacked Iraq to draw attention from their Saudi friends, and have lost the hearts and minds of many of the U.S. servicemen in the war. The film premiered Monday...

    The Iraqis who have risen up against the occupation are not "insurgents" or "terrorists" or "The Enemy." They are the REVOLUTION, the Minutemen, and their numbers will grow -- and they will win....I oppose the U.N. or anyone else risking the lives of their citizens to extract us from our debacle...the majority of Americans supported this war once it began and, sadly, that majority must now sacrifice their children until enough blood has been let that maybe -- just maybe -- God and the Iraqi people will forgive us in the end.
