Documentary filmmaker Nick Broomfield feels uncomfortable in America since PRESIDENT George W Bush was elected.

British Bloomfield was in the States recently while making a film about the serial killer AILEEN WUORNOS, and found the climate of political fear quite upsetting.

He says, "I hated being there. Most of the people I was close to when I lived in Los Angeles have left the country since George Bush got in.

"I have friends who can't say what they think at parties because they'll lose their movie projects. Seriously, they will.

"A lot of people are suddenly being investigated and having their tax returns disputed."
