SONG LOGIC - my new book!|
An Ridire Risteard
Am sure I'll get the full analysis in continued discussion in print or mail, and I'm sure Andrew doesn't like it's more blatant bending of truth and context, but I think the net effect of the film (despite Moore's continued earnings from the system he lampoons) is that it'll help ditch what Naomi Klein called the Distraction in Chief. That's the single greatest virtue of the film.
And it reminded of the times when people had to go to the cinema to get a real sense of visual news. But it was regettably televisual.
Also, on the other blog (for length), part of a longer piece picking at the bio.
"There is of course as much truth in biographies as there is in novels, except the latter doesn’t exploit the semblance so fraudulently. The thin categorical difference separating the two is merely for the convenience of bookstores — the difference no longer exists in the reality of the works. But for all intents we act like it does."
