Consider, if you will:


Topic: How Michael Moore's piece is making execs hard and wet.

The views of one Sauce1977 are definitely not confused with that of anyone else. As follows:

Wrong, wrong, wrong WRONG WRONG FUCKING WRONG.

From the article:


LOS ANGELES - Since the early days of cinema, documentaries have served as inquisitive, truth-seeking counterparts to make-believe drama.

The difference today is, people are actually watching them.

Long viewed as dusty reminders of dreary educational films people watched in school, documentaries have put on a fresh face and caught audiences' attention.

Encouraged by enthusiastic crowds at film festivals that showcase documentaries, distributors are snapping up nonfiction films and theaters are more inclined to book them. Primed by the surge in reality television, moviegoers are hungrier for stories of real people.

Back to Sauce1977:

Mr. Germain, wait a minute.

I'll save you the scathing emotions of bile and phlegm, but the opening statement draws furious feelings from me.

Let's look at that first sentence:

Since the early days of cinema, documentaries have served as inquisitive, truth-seeking counterparts to make-believe drama.

Right there, that's the problem . . . truth.

Documentary . . . my ass.

What truth?

Tell me, Mr. Moore and Mr. Germain, just how many exaggerations were made to arrive to the 'truths' in the piece? People are watching them because it is ENTERTAINMENT.

At least, lie to me like all the politicians do. They do it with style.

Viva moore!

Michael Moore never really has an answer. He has a series of questions with interesting facts to back it up. (Like "But what about..." and "could it be?....") The movie was entertaining.
There was truth in that movie. Every dead child piled up in that Iraqi's truck, that wasn't fiction. woman from flint who had the son die, that wasn't fiction.
the 9/11 footage was really not fiction.
Sure there were some exagerations. But at least they were damn entertaining.
But all in all, this movie was just an Opinion of Michael Moore. And I guess he and I share the same opinions.

Re: Viva moore!

That's my point.

It's wonderful entertainment.

To call it a documentary, as written by Mr. Germain, would be to misplace the word 'documentary' with 'entertainment.'

The implication of truth goes in hand with the mention of documentary.

Documentaries show how things are.

This showed us how to laugh at all of the nonsense. It's entertainment with a shred of truth, scattered here and there.
