Probably the most talked-about film of 2004, this controversial documentary by political filmmaker Michael Moore focuses on the administration of George W. Bush and his 'War on Terrorism' agenda. The film explores the government's handling of the terrorist attacks on September 11th 2001, explores the dubious relationship between both Bush administrations and the bin Laden family, questions the possible role of Saudi Arabia in the attacks, and looks at the fallout of the tragedy and subsequent events from a personal angle through the testimony of Lila Lipscomb, a Michigan woman whose son was killed in Iraq. The film premiered at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival under a cloud of controversy: Disney, Miramax's Florida-based parent company, pulled out of its role as distributor at the last minute, possibly not wishing to jeopardise its advantageous relationship with the Florida Governor Jeb Bush, which results in multi-million-dollar annual tax breaks for the company.
