Critic Reviews for Divide and Conquer: The Story of Roger Ailes

All Critics (51) | Top Critics (17) | Fresh (46) | Rotten (5)

  • Director Alexis Bloom reaches back far enough into Ailes's unhappy youth in small-town Ohio to explain both his deep understanding of the heartland and his ruthless abuse of those in his professional orbit.

    March 11, 2020 | Full Review…
  • A shocking, well-researched and richly observant documentary from Alexis Bloom about the climate of lies and systemic sexual abuse that allowed the bad behavior of Fox News chief Roger Ailes to flourish until his victims said Time's Up.

    December 13, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It's both a memorial and a cautionary tale about unchecked power and ambition in America.

    December 7, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • It's naive to blame the current cancerous state of American politics on a single carcinogen, but don't let that stop you from pointing fingers at Roger Ailes.

    December 7, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • This is the acid test for a good journalistic documentary: No matter how far back it reaches, Divide and Conquer always feels as if it's in the present tense.

    December 7, 2018 | Full Review…
  • "Divide and Conquer" is well worth watching, underscoring the power Ailes wielded at the enterprise he ran for 20 years like a virtual kingdom.
