    And was met with some disapproval. Here is one quote from the "www.moorewatch.com" website...
    When the Iranians tell you you're anti-American, it's time to admit it.

    --------------------------------------

    "The authorities obviously gave the film the green light for political reasons, in that anything against the United States must be good,” quipped one of the hundreds of mainly young people who flocked to Tuesday night’s opening screening.

    The prize-winning documentary has been allowed out on release here to coincide with the third anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks in the United States—which kicked off a chain of events that has seen Iran surrounded by US troops and lumped into an “axis of evil”.

    “They are showing this film to erase from our minds the idea that America is the great saviour,” said Hirad Harandian, another cinemagoer at the uptown Farhang cinema.

    ...

    But she hastened to complain that “out of all the films people would love to see, the authorities had to go for this one—just because this film is in line with the view of the Islamic regime."

    Michael Moore was at the Republican Convention, I believe . And when the Reps critisized his movie, when they look at him to whistle him, he answered. I loved his answzer : he did a sign with his hand : the V. For Victory.
