Scathing indictment of President Bush's domestic and international policies leading up to and following the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, which attempts to link his family with prominent Saudi moneymen, including members of the bin Laden clan, and which contends that his administration capitalized on the climate of fear following the World Trade Center tragedy to hoodwink the American public into an immoral war with Iraq. Director Michael Moore walks a perilous line between documentary filmmaking and partisan propaganda, which, though by turns compellingly sobering and engagingly entertaining, presents an unfairly one-sided blame-Bush-for-everything case that fails to take into account wider geopolitical realities, resulting in a manipulative and at times misleading interpretation of facts. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
