Congratulations Michael Moore

Michael Moore's controversial documentary about the Bush family and the war in Iraq, "Fahrenheit 9/11" was awarded the Palme d'Or Saturday at the 57th Festival de Cannes. Jury president Quentin Tarantino said the jury "was proud to announce" Moore's victory, which prompted a standing ovation from the closing night gala audience.

Anant Singh has bought the rights to screen the film in South Africa, so hopefully we'll be able to judge it for ourselves before too long.
