Movie Info

DIVIDE AND CONQUER: THE STORY OF ROGER AILES sheds light on the current moment in American political life by following the arc of Roger Ailes: long-time Republican svengali and controversial founder of Fox News. Like a true Shakespearean figure, ambition and desire were Ailes' undoing. He was finally toppled when victims of his sexual harassment stepped forward. The accounts of these women - raw and infuriating - are the axis around which Ailes' story inexorably turns


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

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

A well-made documentary that leaves you with the imprint of Roger Ailes' domineering arrogance, and the way he used it to shape American political reality and, finally, the world.

September 30, 2018 | Full Review…

A competent but conventional affair, highly watchable but low on fresh angles or bombshell revelations.

September 18, 2018 | Full Review…

Fleet, lucid, and very watchable, the film is as ruthlessly effective and goal-oriented as its namesake.

September 13, 2018 | Rating: B | Full Review…

A powerful man held accountable for harassment and abuse? Flaws aside, it's just the story we need.

October 11, 2018 | Full Review…

Ailes was a monster, but it's worth spending time in his creepy orbit in order to try and understand him.

October 10, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

There's the misapprehension that people like Ailes are in any way compelling as characters on their own, even as continual investigation finds that - shocker - rich conservative white people are rather vacant, driven mainly by hate and resentment.
