Continuity mistake: After interviewing Charlton Heston and as he is leaving Heston's property, Michael Moore tries to show him the picture of a little girl that was killed by her 6 year old classmate. Heston walks away but Moore keeps shouting back to him. The scene keeps jumping back and forth between a wide shot behind Moore looking into Heston's yard, an a very close up shot of Moore as he is yelling with the picture to show Heston. Moore claims both angles were taken simultaneously with two cameras. However, neither camera is visible in the shots. This is impossible. In the wide shots, there is no place that the close up camera could have been hidden. Due to the plants, etc. obstructing the view, the close up camera had to be a few feet in front of Moore at most and thus would have been visible in the side angle shots.

Marilyn Manson: When I was a kid growing up, music was the escape. That's the only thing that had no judgments. You know, you put on a record, and it's not going to yell at you for dressing the way you do. It's going to make you feel better about it.
