Stealing America: Vote by Vote Reviews

Mark Keizer
Boxoffice Magazine

As much as they champion the notion that any election chicanery is bad for both parties, this is strictly another propaganda-laced lashing out at corporations and the Republicans who use them to steal elections.

Functions as an organizing tool for people worked up about the important issue, but is hardly suitable as a commercial doc release.

It helps for a documentary about America's broken voting system to be flush with facts and outrage. But a little filmmaking wouldn't hurt, either.

Stealing America: Vote by Vote might have been this year's most alarming and patriotic documentary if it weren't so shoddy and dull.

The case it lays out is factually sketchy, but as a movie, it's unforgivable.

more likely to depress voters than to galvanize them.

Everybody loves a good conspiracy theory, and I'm more than willing to believe that Kerry really won. But Fadiman offers only circumstantial evidence when a smoking gun is needed.

Stealing America is basically a rallying tool for activists.

A clumsy if well-intentioned work of recycled propaganda, a mixture of hard evidence, random anecdote and far-flung inference that may convince some viewers that a clear verdict can be rendered on that impossibly murky event.

The title is provocative and the timing is right for an examination of the elctorate process, but the data are tentative and anecdotal and the whole execution poor and clumsy.

This is not so much a documentary ... as a recruiting tool. We never hear anything from the other side; and the film ends with a fulsome patriotic call to action.

Does a fine job outlining the ways in which the integrity of the United States electoral process is repeatedly undermined by fraud, de facto disenfranchisement and the concerted efforts of corrupt politicos.

Anyone who doubts for a second that the 2000 and 2004 U.S. Presidential elections were stolen by the Republicans using a methodical process of illegal machinations, should see this nightmare-inducing documentary on the subject.

It's perhaps the year's most canny piece of propaganda... it soothes a sore spot, and it's very effective.

Despite backing up the sobering message of foul play with largely circumstantial evidence, Stealing America does offer useful advice (vote on paper, fools!) for those worried about our creeping American tyranny.

If you need any more proof that a movie like Swing Vote is complete balderdash, with its fantasy about getting couch potatoes out to the polls as the cure-all for what ails America, then here is it.

This well-crafted documentary about the purported theft of the 2004 presidential election could well be the feel-good movie of the summer -- after all, it absolves the general public for everything that happened.

Stealing America: Vote by Vote is sobering. The film suggests that come Nov. 4, the votes of Republicans, Democrats and independents alike might not be counted fair and square.
