Fahrenheit 9/11
I avoided this documentary for quite some time, particularly due to all the hype over how powerful it was, and from other voices how lame it was. Well, I finally watched it to discover that I found it to be neither overly powerful or overly lame, but a fairly normal documentary put together much like others, focusing on the Bush family.     Ignoring the Republican/Democrat verbal boxing matches (lets face it folks, there is no discerning the two parties apart any longer, all …

I am not sure where to start with this movie, or this persuasive visually essay. After all, that is what it is. Anyone who states this movie is entire fact, despite political stripe, is really not being honest with himself or herself. Many of Michael Moore's arguments and positions on topics really follow a "1 + 1 = 3" formula. For instance Fahrenheit 9/11 opens with the Bush/Gore 2000 election. How different news channels weren't displaying solidarity with the results of the election. Then the …

I watched this at the invitation of someone who insisted I do so, saying it would convince me Bush was a disaster for the country. What I saw, instead, were Moore's usual diatribes, cleverly constructed to misrepresent the truth. We all know Bush was inexperienced in facing the camera during his early years in office and highly self-conscious about it to boot, all of which tended to make him smirk foolishly at inopportune moments, stumble haltingly over his words and look beseechingly around, as …

Pros: Plenty of verifiable facts to back his assertions.     Cons: Seen through a biased eye.     The Bottom Line: In the finally analysis Fahrenheit 9/11 is more then just another attempt by Michael Moore to shock us, it is an attempt to educate, to question, to enlighten us.      I should preface this review by telling you that I claim allegiance to neither the Democrat nor Republican Party’s. I am an Independent in my political affiliations …

Pros: moving, presents some undeniable facts, music     Cons: manipulative, can be criticized as “propaganda,” too broad in scope     The Bottom Line: Let your anger rise / and we'll fly and we'll fall and we'll burn / no one will recall, no one will recall - Muse - "Stockholm Syndrome"     Do you remember what it was like to trust your government? Back in the simple days of the Cold War, I blissfully thought of the USA as “the good …

Pros: Powerful, funny, spirited     Cons: Anguished, sad, depressing     The Bottom Line: It is both anguised and angry at the same time which leaves the viewer feeling torn - not sure whether to cry or riot.      Plot Details: This opinion reveals major details about the movie''s plot. Michael Moore's hot topic film contained no new surprises - but was a great example of the freedom of the press in the United States. Moore took square …
review by . June 25, 2004
Pros: Good humor and interesting discussion topics abound.     Cons: Not always an objective look.     The Bottom Line: While not always objective, Moore has created a film that you simply can't forget.     Next to “The Passion of the Christ” no film has generated more controversy than Michael Moore’s “Fahrenheit 9/11”. The film takes a highly critical look at the Bush administration, the War against Terror, and the …
