I just came from seeing this film and YOU MUST SEE IT.
Sure, me seeing the movie is like the converted listening to another sermon. And there’s no doubt it is one-sided and slanted. Even I thought of responses to some of the statements Michael Moore makes. Yet the last 30 or so minutes of the film should be seen by everyone — not for its political content but the human impact. There were more than a few tears being shed throughout the theater. This film is documentary film-making at its best.
And if even if you care less what I say about the movie, go see it if simply to reward Century Theaters for actually bringing it to Sioux Falls. Besides, how often are you ever going to see a documentary where the audience applauds at the end?
As a final aside, many of South Dakota’s rabid right circle jerk bloggers (to whom I refuse to link) are blathering about Daschle attending the Washington premier and that the movie is unjustified third party support for Daschle in his Senate race. You can tell they haven’t seen the film. Moore takes a couple shots at Daschle and there is nothing in the film that could be construed as pro-Daschle. Of course, not seeing or having any intent to see the film doesn’t preclude these fools from authoritatively commenting on it. Maybe it would do them some good to get away from the circle jerk and rightwing screeds for a mere two hours and see another viewpoint.
