Michael Moore's documentary is more of an attack of
George W. Bush' presidential administration rather than an informative or educational account of the events of September 11th 2001.
Credit has to be given to the filmmaker for not shying
away from the controversial in order to get his voice heard, but if you have little interest in American politics then it's all quite pointless to watch aside from a scene in which the
former president squirms in front of a room full of school kids when he receives the news of the events in New York City on that fateful day. Personally, I think liberal Hollywood are a
bit hypocritical for lauding praise on this, while at the same time shunning more conservative or Republican-leaning documentaries as mere propaganda.
