Top News Article | "CANNES, France (Reuters) - The Cannes film festival has given Michael Moore the perfect platform to harangue President Bush after awarding the controversial U.S. filmmaker one of world cinema's top prizes.
Moore, eager to stir the disenfranchised into voting in November's presidential elections, landed the best film award for 'Fahrenheit 9/11,' a blistering indictment of Bush's handling of Iraq and the war on terror.
'Perhaps this film will have a tremendous impact. I hope it will,' said Moore who said he would be shocked if the documentary did not find a U.S. distributor after being awarded the Palme d'Or.
The Walt Disney company had ordered its Miramax unit not to distribute the politically polarizing documentary in an election year. "
