LOS ANGELES - Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11 may or may not have an impact on the November presidential elections. But the controversial documentary is definitely reshaping the independent film landscape in Hollywood.

Starting with "Roger and Me" in 1989, then "Bowling for Columbine" in 2002 and now "Fahrenheit 9/11," Michael Moore has proven that big issues can generate big box office.

"I think it's definitely raised eyebrows both on the plane of what kind of business a documentary can do out there in theaters and also what kind of business controversial films as a whole can do," said Gary Adelson, a media industry analyst at Houlihan Lokey Howard and Zukin.

The impact of "Fahrenheit 9/11" goes far beyond the box office.
