Jason's rating of the film Fahrenheit 11/9

I always plan to shrug off the next Michael Moore, and usually, having finally seen it, cannot. It was already clear from ROGER AND ME that these are essay films more than documentaries. Sure, he's no Chris Marker. He isn't even Adam Curtis. But Moore is addressing a very large audience in a way that strikes me as ultra shrewd. I cannot help but be fascinated by the semiotics of effective audio-visual rhetoric.
