OSCAR-winning filmmaker Michael Moore has received death threats from furious Americans over his latest movie FAHRENHEIT 9/11, which casts a critical eye over President George W Bush's administration's handling of events after 11 September (01).

Moore - who picked up the PALME D'OR award at CANNES for the documentary - has been a target for US patriots, as the film argues that the Bush government used the terrorist attacks to further their own agenda.

A friend of Moore says, "People have been emailing his website. It's really ugly stuff."
