Poles: F-9/11 is 'Propaganda'

By Matt Hurley for the TIB Network:

From the BBC:
Michael Moore's contentious film Fahrenheit 9/11 has opened in Poland, with some film critics likening it to totalitarian propaganda.

Gazeta Wyborcza reviewer Jacek Szczerba called the film a "foul pamphlet".

He said it was too biased to be called a documentary and was similar to work by Nazi propaganda director Leni Riefenstahl.

But politicians opposed to Poland's involvement in the US-led occupation of Iraq have urged people to see the film.

"In criticising Moore, I have to admit that he has certain abilities - Leni Riefenstahl had them too," Mr Szczerba said in his review.

"Michael Moore will not convince Poles with his film," the Rzeczpospolita newspaper said in its review.
I don't think the film is on the level of Nazi propaganda. Mr. Moore is many things, but he is NOT a Nazi.

To fully understand Michael Moore, I recommend reading Michael Moore is a Big Fat Stupid White Man. My review can be found here.

3:50PM Update

Doc Lob mentions an article that I had forgotten about that shed some light on F-9/11's lack of truth.
