Fahrenheit 11/9 Reviews

February 11, 2021
Fahrenheit 11/9 proceeds in Moore's customary impressionistic and intellectually careless manner, often praised as non-elitist and "populist."
February 6, 2020
Michael Moore returns to the self-mythologizing and fact fudging.
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.
January 19, 2019
Moore never focuses long enough to make a meaningful and coherent statement; like three great documentaries combined into one subpar survey.
November 9, 2018
As much as I admire Moore's ability to put his finger in the eyes of intolerable situations, his manipulative tendencies can outweigh even the most good of causes. [Full Review in Spanish]
November 6, 2018
It is an expression of anger, disappointment, and fear, understandably scattered and lacking in focus and direction, but certainly heartfelt.
October 18, 2018
Much in Moore's analysis is very hard to disagree with, but this doesn't make it automatically valuable. Sharp points go astray, lost in the sloppy tirade.

You may not sleep soundly after viewing.

Michael Moore heralds the apocalypse. Everything has gone to Hell in a hand basket. Donald Trump bulldozed right over the savior of America!
September 27, 2018
The film has a few scattered good insights, most notably in its Flint section, but overall it doesn't add much to the general critique of Trump that's now been a daily drumbeat for over three years.
September 24, 2018
The genius of Moore's first film was its entry point: Moore began with an up-close look at his hometown of Flint, Michigan, and then expanded out to make Flint a microcosm for a broken nation. This one gets that backward, to its detriment.

The punditry is trite. The snark is boring.
September 24, 2018
An exceedingly hit-and-miss effort...
September 24, 2018
The film will neither change minds nor soothe embittered hearts, I fear, and an opportunity has been missed.
September 23, 2018
While there are a few moments in the movie that can be said to be Moore at his best, the production as a whole may be Moore at his worst.
September 22, 2018
Nowadays, Moore has a lot of competition. The best time to see this film is before the news cycle changes, which could be any minute now.
September 21, 2018
For the informed viewer, Fahrenheit 11/9 doesn't say anything that hasn't been said already. Instead, the film takes everything we already know and reinterprets it in service of condemning a stagnant and self-absorbed liberal political machine...
September 21, 2018
Less partisan viewers may find the film quite long, and not a lot more than a rehash of Moore's political obsessions. If you know his earlier work, you'll find no surprises here.
September 21, 2018
You can't help but reflect that Sacha Baron Cohen squeezed more out of his recent agitprop stunts, or wish for the narrower focus of a documentary like Sabaah Folayan's Whose Streets?
September 21, 2018
A sloppy stew of bullet points, a fatty alphabet soup that overwhelms when it ought to enlighten. It's an unfocused, undisciplined letdown from a bright voice that appears to have lost its way.
