Fahrenheit 9/11

Following the success of "Bowling for Columbine", Michael Moore uses his characteristic deft humour and uniquely persistent style to launch an unflinching and searing examination of the Bush administration's actions in the wake of the tragic events of 9/11. Moore considers the presidency of George W. Bush and where it has led the world. He looks at how - and why - Bush and his inner circle avoided pursuing the Saudi connection to 9/11 and lifts the lid on the President's own private Pandora's Box of personal friendships and business ties with the Saudi Royal and Bin Laden families. "Fahrenheit 9/11" shows a nation kept in constant fear by FBI alerts and misleading media reports, and it is in this atmosphere of confusion, suspicion and dread that the Bush administration makes its headlong rush towards war in Iraq. Moore takes us inside the war to tell the stories we haven't heard, illustrating the awful human cost to U.S. soldiers and their families. Winner of Best Picture (the Palme d'Or) at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival.
