Final Word from Monday, July 19, 2004





When Václav Klaus saw "Fahrenheit 9/11" at the Karlovy Vary film festival, he said it wasn't anything special. He then devoted an entire article to it in LN on Fri. and was very critical. The film is boring, unremarkable and propagandistic, he said. On an intellectual level, Klaus is no doubt right. On another level, though, this shows that despite being a self-proclaimed admirer of the U.S., Klaus is out-of-touch with American popular culture. Moore's docu-comedies are primarily about self-aggrandizement, populism and making money (things Klaus knows plenty about) and must be admired for their ability to hit the right button at the right moment. Of course the films are second-rate cinema. As The Who said once, you've got to avoid too much quality, because people just can't appreciate it. This is surely something that Klaus, with his IQ, can understand.docucomedies Lidové noviny
