I was wandering around the library the other day (yes, I actually books) and ran across Fahrenheit 9/11 and Fahrenhype 9/11.
When they originally came out I deliberately ignored them. Why? I didn’t want to deal with the distraction from my normal life. Although, I did promise to myself that eventually I would see them both.
So, I took them from the library. I decided that I would set aside a time to watch continuously both movies.
While watching Fahrenheit 9/11, I felt myself led by a compelling and emotional story that appeared to connect disparate facts in a broad web of conspiracy. And during all that, there seemed to be broad disconnects filled by long periods of vastly emotional scenes with poignant vignettes of sarcasm. In this purported documentary, it truly set me back that great segments of information packing capability was jammed more with entertainment and mood setting like I would expect from a fictional movie. Of the full two hours in length, stripping away all the mood setting, I figured half of the time was actual fact projections.
While watching Fahrenhype 9/11 it became clear it was truly a rebuttal and explained a lot of what I sensed was missing from Fahrenheit. I won’t go into the total details, but I have to say it filled a lot of voids and explain why the answers were so incredibly over simplified. I was very impressed with the fact that a number of the people from Fahrenheit were in Fahrenhype disputing the movie and the context their
What’s my judgment? Fahrenheit is definitely an emotionally driven entertainment production that will stir you deeply with concern that our country is headed down hill and the bottom will be fatal. Ultimately though, Fahrenhype shines a light of clarity on this and truly deflates the emotional tidal wave of Fahrenheit.
Which do I believe? Fahrenhype.
