Movie Info

Filmmakers Nick Doob and Chris Hegedus document a year in the life of satirist Al Franken, as he tours to promote his book "Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right" and as he helps lay the groundwork for Air America and campaigns for John Kerry during the 2004 presidential election. In between, Franken spars with pundits Bill O'Reilly and Ann Coulter.

  • This film by Nick Doob and Chris Hegedus forces us to make some decisions about him. For myself, I find him generally gross, in person and in manner.

    October 26, 2006
  • A documentary in search of a story.

  • Often entertaining.

  • What this documentary lacks in intent, insight, and surprise it makes up for in thoroughness.

    October 6, 2006 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • A fascinating combination of class clown and fact-happy debate-club president, Franken nonetheless makes for a compelling subject, but God Spoke veers uncomfortably into hagiography, especially as it winds down.

Audience Reviews for Al Franken: God Spoke

  • Jun 18, 2008
    I imagine that Al Fraken has a very very difficult job. The bluster one must experience in a world of pundits is probably hurricane-like, so it's amazing that Franken can keep smiling and being funny. It's really his personality more than anything that drives this documentary, but it's a little hard to focus on him amid the hostile political climate in the US.
