Congrats to Moore 

'Fahrenheit 9/11' Wins Top Prize at Cannes
And, as "the chien" has astutely noted:
I wonder why "DC 911: A time of Crisis" was not even given a chance to compete against Farenheight 911? I have seen reports that DC 911 was blacklisted by the liberals controlling hollywood
C'est vrai, chien, c'est tout vrai!

Also check out Frank Rich's piece:
In particular, the movie's second hour is carried by the wrenching story of Lila Lipscomb, a flag-waving, self-described "conservative Democrat" from Mr. Moore's hometown of Flint, Mich., whose son, Sgt. Michael Pedersen, was killed in Iraq. We watch Mrs. Lipscomb, who by her own account "always hated" antiwar protesters, come undone with grief and rage. As her extended family gathers around her in the living room, she clutches her son's last letter home and reads it aloud, her shaking voice and hand contrasting with his precise handwriting on lined notebook paper. A good son, Sergeant Pedersen thanks his mother for sending "the bible and books and candy," but not before writing of the president: "He got us out here for nothing whatsoever. I am so furious right now, Mama."
As speakingcorpse notes:

This is going to be a really big deal. I think that he IS going to have problems distributing it, in part because I think that it could spark violence. The people who don't want to hear this are not going to take being informed lying down. They are going to be furious to the point of committing terrorist acts. We may well be on the verge of patriotic acts of aimless maruading, terror, and violence.
