While I generally view Moore as fighting the good fight, his Achilles Heel, to me, is the fact that he comes across as a smug, rude asshole. I also don't like that Progressive political thought is being visually married to an unshaven, fat slob like Moore.

But these, I suppose, are minor quibbles when trying to unseat Satan from his throne.

Um, Chester, since when do you have a problem with smug and rude?

I thought maybe it was on purpose, the way the movie jumped around and left major points out or un-explored. I think a direct case would have been too sensational--and the way it was filmed gave me a chance to let it sink in and make my own conclusions. Notice, he didn't mention much about the lack of wmds or the missing uranium lies, and I guess this was probably finished before any of the prison scandal. What Moore gave me with this movie were new links and explanations for stuff I already knew about.

Spelling it out more clearly, or including all the things we already know about to make his point would have made the film too extreme to be taken seriously.

What's happened is so awful, it's overwhelming. I took the pace of the movie for a psychological maneuver--scare the crap out of you, show a silly clip, rip your heart out, talk about Oregon. It had a rhythm that kept me focused and didn't allow me to go numb at any point.

Molly: Touché. But, still...I'm always neatly groomed and more chubby than fat.

iirc the point of the lone trooper protecting oregon was to demonstrate just how seriously the bush admin is "protecting the homeland." (which i find to be a disturbing phrase, but whatever)

considering the amount of material bush has provided over the past four years, i think moore did a great job puting it into a two hour package.

It is hard to say such a thing is clear.
