Ok, one thing I left out of my thoughtful and erudite post on Fahrenheit 9/11: I bought my tickets for the Friday night (11 p.m.) showing on Wednesday morning. It was the only show that wasn't sold out at the time, though it sold out shortly thereafter (I know because my personal design assistant, Kate, tried to score tix to accompany us). At the theater, many people were begging for tickets at the box office. And yet, during the actual movie, at least one-third of the seats were entirely empty.
What gives? Is it a vast right-wing conspiracy to keep people from hearing the truth? A vast left-wing conspiracy to inflate box office sales and make the Bushies scared and sad? A vast statement about a great party somewhere else that was too fun to leave (and that I wasn't invited to? Hello, Terry McAuliffe, don't make me tell you again.)
Did anyone else notice a suspicious number of empty seats in the theater when you saw the film?
