CNN: Cannes applauds anti-Bush film

CANNES, France — Michael Moore’s controversial anti-Bush film “Fahrenheit 9/11” has debuted at the Cannes Film Festival to resounding applause from film critics.


Moore, who is facing an uphill battle to get his movie into U.S. theaters this summer as planned, offers a relentless critique of the Bush administration both before and after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.


“You see so many movies after they’ve been hyped to heaven and they turn out to be complete crap, but this is a powerful film,” Baz Bamigboye, a film columnist for London’s Daily Mail newspaper, told The Associated Press.
