I saw Fahrenheit 9/11 tonight. It is an excellent, brilliant work of cinema. I estimate that it's impact will be pretty huge. The New York Times has, in fact, a whole section devoted to the 'controversial' film ("Spotlight on 'Fahrenheit 9/11'"), including a review by A.O. Scott ("Unruly Scorn Leaves Room for Restraint, but Not a Lot") and an op-ed column by David Brooks ("All Hail Moore"). Rolling Stone gave the documentary a decidedly positive review, scoring it at ***1/2.
