Leonardo DiCaprio's "global poisoning" documentary "The 11th Hour" screened this morning at the Cannes Film FestivalJeff Wells sums up the consensus at the festival (assuming it's more than a consensus of one), "The general consensus among the journos is that Michael Moore's Sicko is a more engaging and persuasive piece of agitprop than 11th Hour, which offers a very dense and thorough assessment of how we're fucking the planet every which way, but at the same time is a little too crammed with information."   Justin Chang, writing for Variety, notes, "True to its doom-laden title, global-warming doc "The 11th Hour" presents the viewer with reams of depressing data, loads of hand-wringing about the woeful state of humanity and, finally, some altogether fascinating ideas about how to go about solving the climate crisis."

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
