Fahrenheit 9/11′ stirs emotions on Long Island

A sure-footed Republican and self-described “ardent Bush-Cheney supporter,” Alan Wilenski found none of his other right-leaning friends and family willing to go along with his Sunday afternoon plans.

But the Alan Wilenski who stepped out of the Farmingdale Multiplex Cinemas yesterday afternoon, after the 12:40 showing of “Fahrenheit 9/11,” was a different man. Hands in pockets, his expression contemplative, he left with more than a new perspective. He left with three more tickets to a later showing of Michael Moore’s politically combustible documentary criticizing the Bush administration and the war in Iraq.

“It’s really given me pause to think about what’s really going on,” said Wilenski, 50, of Plainview. “There was just too much – too much to discount.”
