"You mean he's gonna talk about the actual FILM? Well that's just downright insanity, is what."
As far as The Cinema is concerned, 2004 has been one of the most interesting years in recent memory, is what The Duke has deduced via detailed analysis, critique and pondering with regards The Popular Motherfucking Culture.
Despite the Spider-Men and Punishers and what-not, the most anticipated, most debated films of the year thus far have not been CGI extravaganzas or escapist tomfoolery, but have in fact been a foreign-language exploitation gore-flick about a fella gets whipped, hammered, tortured for two hours, and a political documentary.
This is nigh on unprecedented, is what.
Hellboy came and went, Roland Emmerich went to great lengths to destroy various landmarks in The Snow What Killed The World, and yet, the flick everyone wants to see, the only one anyone seems to have an opinion on right now, is a film about The President starring George W Bush.
Except, the hilarious thing is, despite the number of articles, blog entries, debates in forums about Fahrenheit 9/11, a fella would be hard pressed to find anything worthwhile with regards the quality of the piece as a slice of celluloid.
All anyone wants to yack about is how much of lying motherfucker that Michael Moore may or may not be, and it's all a load of the horseshit, don't you know, and how can you say it's a documentary you communist left-wing bodysnatcher?
Is it any good? Who the fuck knows?
So let The Duke be the first to offer a review of the film what does just that; talks about the film.
But first, there's a little bit of etiquette with regards The Writings Concerning Fahrenheit 9/11 that I feel it would be uncouth not to oblige.
When folks went about reviewing The Passion, they had to waste the first two paragraphs telling every motherfucker about every aspect of any theological musings they had ever engaged in. Folks wanted to know just what kind of character you might be, before they wanted to hear what you had to say about Mad Max Beyond Gethsemane. Why did you like this flick, huh? Was it because you enjoyed it on an aesthetic level, or because you were some kind of anti-Semitic motherfucker with a hard-on for the fundamentalists?
Same thing applies to any yacking about Michael Moore's new picture. Folks wanna know who you vote for, why you vote for them, what your thoughts on the political situation in Sudan might be, who the hell you think you are anyroad?
