make movies, not war
i read his books too, and couldn't stand them.
and, No, it is Not like the movie.
moore's writing is like Kerouac's singing.
not the artist's strong suit.
he makes great movies, is maybe creating an entire new genre of op-ed documentaries, but that doesn't make him a painter or a writer.
think - jimmy stewart's poetry.
but on the other hand he's a fuckin master of the cinema.
you'll REALLY enjoy it!
go have fun.
