The Michael Moore Fiasco

Unfairenheit 9/11 - The lies of Michael Moore, by Christopher Hitchens: "Fahrenheit 9/11 is a sinister exercise in moral frivolity, crudely disguised as an exercise in seriousness."

Fifty-nine Deceits in Fahrenheit 9/11

Unmoored From Reality: an editorial from the Wall Street Journal about deliberate deception in "Bowling for Columbine" and other libelous works by Michael Moore

A detailed description of the techniques of deceit and fabrication used in "Bowling for Columbine".

Spinsanity website: a collection of articles on Moore's loose way with facts.

Moore attempts to defend his movie from the critics' charges, mainly by calling them "nutcases" and "lunatics".

This fellow is certainly energetic.

See also this rather partisan site devoted to exposing the filmaker's "doublespeak and falsehood".

Chances are if you've seen an animated film within the past few years, then you've seen DVNR. Whether you noticed it or not is a different question. Video and laserdisc releases that have prominent DVNR contamination include such titles as Betty Boop: The Definitive Collection (Republic)”

NFB: The great National Film Board of Canada has a many short animated films available for free viewing here, as streamed movies. I tried to watch The Big Snit in Quicktime (you have your choice of that or Flash) using both Opera and Camino on the Mac and each browser crashed at the same point in the stream. The Flash version played without crashing, but with several long pauses. It looks like the only way to enjoy these great films is to figure out how to download them.

Might this interview with Ridley Scott on the final cut of Blade Runner finally put to rest the tiresome debates?

"Wired: It was never on paper that Deckard is a replicant.
Scott: It was, actually. That's the whole point of Gaff, the guy who makes origami [...].”



Blade Runner (UWI)

And these people are really serious about Blade Runner.
