I agree with a lot of the things shown in the film, but not with how Moore choose to approach them. Excellent points were made about being in Iraq when the focus should have been on Afghanistan, and showing civilians on both sides made things much more personal than they ever are on the news stations. However, Moore focused way too much on Bush and his faults. All in all, a good movie if you read between the lines.
It was good, but it got slow about 3/4 into it.
Although Michael is selective about his facts and the context in which they are presented, like any good writer he uses them to support a thesis. It is, of course, the thesis that counts. A fascinating look at the events prior to and after 9/11 and a glimpse at the lesser known machinations of the American electoral process.
This is an exceptional documentary. A must see for every American.
Clever use of sound bites and the master of taking things TOTALLY out of context..Worst moive of the year...Best fantasy movie is you really believe in B.S. like this kind of movie!!!
This movie did exactly what it was intended to do -- get us talking about something important. If one watches all the congressional hearings on 9/11, one would see that nothing in this film is new; in fact, these very question he makes light of are taken deadly seriously in those hearings, and the lack of answers is glaring. Of course Moore is biased, and why should he feel ashamed of it. Does anyone think for a moment that all the Media is NOT biased! You never get the facts in media, and often all you get is the "supportive chorus" echoing the views of the current leader (we endure this garbage in Canada all the time). It is like Moore said
I recently have seen Fahrenheit 9/11 and unfortuntately I went to the super late show which made me tired and unable to pay close attention as I would have earlier in the day. None the less, I really enjoyed Michaels views on the American government. All I can say is Im damn-well glad im Canadian and not being run by a man like Bush. Despite our recent problems with our government, it doesnt compare to Bush`s ignorant views and lack of proper decision making skills. I learned quite a bit from this movie. Despite the fact this movie is clearly biased, it still demonstrated the truth of Bush`s actions and ties with Iraq and the Saudi`s. A MUST-
Patriotic blindness is the sickness of America, and this film is the cure. Everyone should see this film, although thoughtfully biased, it will open your eyes.
i was insulted by moores poor and unprofessional film where by it slashed bushes reputation not that i am a fan of bush but i was disgusted with moores comments that slandered and poorly represented bushes time working for the people, although he might have made a few or many mistakes, so does everyone else, there was no way he could have predicted that 9/11 was going to happen and what caused it, and what links he might have had to it. Moores film was a film featuring his own opinion, anyone can have an opinion and decide what a person did wrong and see the wrongs in others but not everyone can run a country, i would like to see moore attemp
