1. As many on this board know, I am very liberal, and don't like just about anything about Bush.
2. I haven't seen the movie, but I've heard enough to know it's very political; which brings me to ->
3. I find it very disconcerting that this film got Palm D'Or. Unless Moore's cinematographic talents increased tremendously while I wasn't looking , I find it hard to believe that the judges at Cannes honestly thought this was the best movie in the world made this year. Now, I realize that being vehemently anti-Bush is rather convenient for those Europeans who hate American policy but are too intelligent to "hate Americans". However, it saddens me whenever an artistc award is turned into politics. I've always considered Cannes to be less political than Oscars. This, however, no longer makes it so.
