from michael moore's site:
"The hate mail, the threats, the promises of retribution have already started to roll in to the distributor of this movie, United Artists. They are not backing down. But how long will this last? I need all of you in the New York tri-state and southern California areas to go see "Bowling for Columbine" THIS weekend -- the rest of you can see it in a couple of weeks when it comes to your town. A strong opening not only means that the rest of America will see this film, it means that a good number of people who see it are going to leave the film angry enough to get active and get involved. If it does poorly, I will have a difficult time finding the funding for the movie I want to make next -- a film about 9/11 and how Bush is using that tragic day as a cover for his right-wing agenda."

Saw a matinee yesterday. Excellent. I liked some of the connections Moore made. The montage of news announcers saying "the suspect is a black male" followed by clips about the dangers of "africanized" killer bees. Marilyn Manson's riff on the link between fear and consumption. The statement "Osama bin Laden used his CIA training to kill 3000 people." The New York Times film reviewer really tut-tutted over that, calling it "idiotic." Sorry, O voice of mainstream normalcy, but it's true, isn't it? By training, then coldly abandoning, its mujahadeen "assets" after the Cold War the government pretty much guaranteed they'd morph into crack terrorist outfits, and come gunning for us. It's sickening that criticizing the government and the corporations who own it is still characterized as "hating America." One thing I can't get too upset about is all the gun nuts and militiamen out West. They only really hated the government when Democrats were in charge. Now that one of their own (so they think) is running the country they're much quieter.
