Não é todos os dias que a Disney ganha em Cannes com uma das suas produções.
Será que mesmo assim vai continuar a não querer “chatear” a clã Bush mantendo o incómodo documentário por exibir no US of A?
Michael Moore oferece-nos (a nós europeus?) um outro extremo conveniente para uma análise maniqueista do que são os EUA. Dessa crítica não se livra mas “tomadas as devidas precauções” o senhor cumpre um papel útil, uma espécie de bloco de esquerda para os neoconservadores.
Primeiro o Oscar, agora a Palma de Ouro.
Parece que todo o mundo do show biz se virou para o tramar, mister Bush.
Pela minha parte pago para ver este Fahrenheit 9/11.

Algumas palavras de Moore publicadas há poucas horas no seu site (atentem no Post Scriptum):

“(…)Myself and twenty-six members of our crew are here in Cannes and we are in a state of shock. None of us expected this. First came the critics’ reviews on Monday (The New York Times called it my best film ever), then the audience reaction at our premiere (a 20-minute standing ovation, a new all-time record for the festival), the International Federation of Film Critics Award on Friday, and then the best film prize last night. It’s all been an incredible week for us and I can’t wait to get back home and show you all this wonderfully powerful film we’ve made.

No, we still don’t have a distributor in America as I write this but after winning the world’s top film prize I’d give it about one more day (if that) before we have someone brave enough (and smart enough) to show Americans what the world can already see (Albania, this week, became the final country—other than the U.S.—to sign on with a distributor).

I am still hoping for a July release (4th of July weekend?) both in the U.S. and around the world.

I fully expect the right wing and the Republican Party to come at me and this film with everything they’ve got. They will try, as they have unsuccessfully in the past, to attack me personally because they cannot win the debate on the issues the film raises—namely, that they are a pack of liars and the American people are on to them. And, if the early screenings of “Fahrenheit 9/11â€? are any indication, those who see this movie will never view the Bush administration in the same way again. Even if you already can’t stomach George W. Bush & Co., I think this movie will take you to places you

P.S. When you hear the wackos on Fox News and elsewhere refer to this prize as coming from “the French,â€? please know that of the nine members of the Festival jury, only ONE was French. Nearly half the jury (four) were Americans and the President of the jury was an American (Quentin Tarantino). But this fact won’t stop the O’Reillys or the Lenos or the Limbaughs from attacking the French and me because, well, that’s how their simple minds function.
