Fahrenheit 11/9 Reviews
March 1, 2021
Is heavy-handed? Yes. Of course it is; it's Michael Moore. Is it effective? Yes. It's a dissertation on where we are and where we are headed, for better and for worse.
February 11, 2021
Fahrenheit 11/9 proceeds in Moore's customary impressionistic and intellectually careless manner, often praised as non-elitist and "populist."
December 6, 2020
The veteran documentarian gathers together a heap of information to analyze and shape into a picture that is as much outright comedy as it is a horror story.
September 7, 2020
Moore's basic point? It's going to take everyone getting involved if we're going to break this cycle.
August 27, 2020
Recent events have dictated [Moore's] latest drive back in the documentary saddle, but he has channelled that pain into making one of the most commanding and compelling documentaries he has done since Bowling for Columbine.
July 25, 2020
[It's] structurally scattershot, preach-to-the-choir filmmaking, and while those issues continue to dog his efforts, [Moore's] latest remains a page-turner of a documentary.
June 23, 2020
It's one of Moore's best films in more than 10 years, and it's certainly one of his most hopeful.
March 4, 2020
The director's comparisons between Trump and Adolf Hitler are overblown, but it's useful to be reminded that demagogues and oligarchs do not, as he puts it, fall out of the sky.
February 6, 2020
Michael Moore returns to the self-mythologizing and fact fudging.
October 18, 2019
"Fahrenheit 11/9" is a serious and sobering work, full of verve and vitriol.
August 20, 2019
[Michael] Moore likes to use Guerrilla tactics as centerpieces of his narrative, and this film has a doozy. It's brilliant.
June 5, 2019
Another fine document of American life at an astonishingly strange point in its history. Sadly the film fails to answer its own questions, despite its most impressive and moving moments appearing to offer something of a solution.
June 4, 2019
The film is a multifaceted video essay, and many of the points [Moore] makes will shock viewers unfamiliar with the US political system, the country's deep social problems and its population demographics.
June 3, 2019
Frightening, disheartening, rousing, inspiring, and scattershot in equal measure.
March 5, 2019
Never forget that some outrageous behavior actually deserves outrage.
February 12, 2019
For a filmmaker with a reputation for humor, this film is not funny. It is all doom and gloom. It seems to me this film aged very quickly during the November 6, 2018 elections, which yielded a result at odds with Moore's overly pessimistic thesis.
February 7, 2019
Self-reflective, deferential to a new generation and angrier than ever, Moore's work is at its best when it moves away from Trump - an easy target.
January 22, 2019
A movie that goes from disappointment and told you so-ism to we can still turn this around attitude, with the asterisk of "if we want to".
