Michael and Me
A film by Ray Bradbury. Not really, but that would be classic. The author of Farenheit 451 called Michael Moore a "Screwed Asshole" for stealing his title in an interview in the Sweedish Daily paper Dagens Nyheter. "He stole my title and changed the numbers without ever asking me for permission," the 83-year-old Bradbury reportedly said in the interview.
When I read that "Bradbury reportedly tried to contact Moore about the title several months ago, but the filmmaker avoided him" it conjured up images of Moore's film Roger and Me in which Moore repeatedly tries to get into contact with the Chairman of GM who avoids him throughout the entire movie. I think that Bradbury should turn this into a "documentary." He could call it Michael and Me if he could get Moore's permission to use his title.
