Michael Moore's view on what happened to the United States after September 11; and how the Bush Administration allegedly used the tragic event to push forward its agenda for unjust wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Filmmaker Davis Guggenheim follows Al Gore on the lecture circuit, as the former presidential candidate campaigns to raise public awareness of the dangers of global warming and calls for immediate action to curb its destructive effects on the environment.
Following up on 'Bowling for Columbine', film-maker Michael Moore provides deep and though-provoking insights on the American security system, the level of paranoia, fear, uncertainty, false values and patriotism, which all combined together to set a stage for George W. Bush to launch a war on Iraq instead of focusing on getting the real culprit(s) behind the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. This documentary also focuses on how some Saudis were safely and secretly flown out of America while planes were ostensibly grounded after the attacks. Archived film footage, candid interviews with politicians, and an overall waste of public funds for a war that was initiated on false pretension to wit: a weapon of mass distraction - to take the focus away from the real enemy and get Americans glued to their TV sets to watch innocent Iraqis and Afghans getting killed. And a war that would eventually alienate the U.S.A. and it's citizens from almost every country on Earth. Written by
In the opening scene, Michael Moore refers to Robert De Niro as " The Taxi Driver guy." Taxi Driver is one of Michael Moore's favorite films. See more »
Was it all just a dream?
God bless you, Florida! Thank you!
Did the last four years not really happen? Look, there's Ben Affleck. He's often in my dreams. And the Taxi Driver guy. He was there too. And little Stevie Wonder, he seemed so happy... like, like a miracle had taken place. Was it a dream? Or was it real?

It it truly amazing that after 6 years of evidence of Bush Cheney duplicity and shenanigans piling up - from the media, in Congress, even in the Pentagon and the CIA - that right-wing loonies still waste their time attacking this film, the majority of its charges proved true and the majority of Americans now convinced that they are true. Thus revealing their true color - yellow: they are such whining crybabies! Like Georgie boy, all they really wanted was some excuse to kill innocent women and children of a different skin color. SICK! Fortunately their day is done - George Bush enters history as the most corrupt, weakest, dumbest and most hated president in the history of America. And his sycophants are quickly exposing themselves as unAmerican, unpatriotic, treasonous blow-hards that care little for the good of the nation, eagerly seeking opportunities to rob Americans of their precious tax-dollars for their friends at Halliburton (which is now no longer an American corporation but operates out of Dubai - just as Cheney, after a brief visit to Wyoming, will soon be retiring to to his vacation home in Saudi Arabia). Yes, a lovely bunch of traitors, all! Farewell as they enter the dustbin of history!
This now thoroughly validated film by Michael Moore stands as an indictment, not only of the Bush regime's barbaric lust for colonial conquest, but of the culpability of the mainstream media that failed to report the truth of Bushcheney shenanigans until America was too deeply entrenched to withdraw, and its economy bankrupted by this preposterous war. I don't know if its a great film, but it's an absolutely necessary historical document. Hopefully, we will soon be dragging Bush to court for war crimes and treason - to see some of the reason why - and to remember NEVER AGAIN to allow America to swing right for the sheer enjoyment of bloodshed - watch this film - it's unforgettable. AND IT'S ALL TRUE!
