A humorous, but more importantly illustrative, documentary about the weight of the media -- especially the comedic media -- on the last presidential election.

A inteligência de Franken é notória, assim como seu pavor à retórica da direita norte-americana %u2013 algo que o filme ilustra de maneira burocrática. Além disso, sua falta de foco leva-o a parecer um mero instrumento de propaganda, o que é lamentável.

This uncritical bio-pic presents Al as more of an intellectual on a mission than a funnyman in search of laughs, leaving one to wonder whether the purpose here was to makeover Al into a political figure for his rumored run for the U.S. Senate.

As a record of the Al Franken you already know and love, Hegedus and Doob's rather slapdash movie is fun.

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

October 6, 2006
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.

September 29, 2006
What is notable about the film is that, despite the fact that it is centered on Franken, filmmakers Nick Doob and Chris Hegedus let everyone have their say, even if Franken gets the usually quite funny last word.
