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.

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.
January 2, 2019
While some of Moore's shtick feels old hat there is a renewed urgency about his message.
November 2, 2018
[The] dire warnings about the direction in which America is heading are most disturbing.
October 31, 2018
In short, nothing Moore says should be taken as gospel - and yet his crass showmanship is in some ways an asset, especially when he approaches subjects that can hardly be discussed in decorous terms.
October 22, 2018
Whether or not you agree with the politics behind it, I think he argues it in a way that is engaging.
October 20, 2018
Moore makes an alarmingly persuasive case that democracy itself is under threat.
October 19, 2018
With Donald Trump in his sights, however, Fahrenheit 11/9...shows Moore reinvigorated and at his most potent, as a film-maker and a polemicist.
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.
October 18, 2018
It is ostensibly about Donald Trump's presidency ("How the f*** did this happen?!") but Moore's approach is wide-ranging and discursive.
October 18, 2018
Catch [Moore] on a good film - and this documentary, Fahrenheit 11/9, is one of his best - and you walk out of the cinema fired up, steam hissing from your ears.
October 17, 2018
Moore tells America to keep the faith, keep fighting the good fight. That message is just about discernible in the fog of pain.
October 16, 2018
An uneven but appropriately rousing attack on Trump, which occasionally loses its focus as it makes its bigger, scarier points about the United States' slide into despotism.
October 15, 2018
Every part of the film has strong moments.
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.
September 24, 2018
The punditry is trite. The snark is boring.
September 24, 2018
It might not be Michael Moore's most cogent film, but Fahrenheit 11/9 is the inspired work of a true American purist, a cautionary warning about how to end a dictatorship and return America to the dream of patriotism.
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 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.
