Much more than a scathing indictment of Dubya-era complicity, Michael Moore's exposé lays bare the devastating heartbreak now central to America's wartime reality.

Michael Moore's fierce and funny Fahrenheit 9/11 is not so much a documentary as a mythology, reducing geopolitical complexities to a neat, tawdry narrative.

People say Moore is Un-American for creating a documentary against the president, well, it's Un-American not to explore other's views.

Populist documentarian Michael Moore raises crucial questions about the ersatz presidency of George Bush in an air of simplicity and honest curiosity.

Isn't quite the bullseye Moore's supporters are hoping for and Bush's supporters are dreading.

If all the world is truly a stage, then leftie bad boy Michael Moore is chief scavenger of the behind-the-scenes skeletons in the storage closet.

The problem with Fahrenheit 9/11 is not that it is one-sided, per se; it is that Moore barely acknowledges there even is another side.

Fahrenheit is, by turns, entertaining, incisive, infuriating, heartbreaking and (this being Moore) slickly populist

Michael Moore proves in his scathing yet facile anti-Bush documentary that more than a good filmmaker he is first and foremost indefatigably populist comedian for whom timing is everything.

Fair and balanced, as Fox News might say, this is not.

Moore's film doesn't set out to convert the hardcore faithful. It sets out to convert the concerned, the independent and the open.

It's a shame [Moore] must use so much sarcasm, mean-spirited mockery, and media manipulation to make his argument, because his ideas deserve serious consideration.

It's a passionate, powerful film that challenges the beliefs of both Democrats and Republicans. The film will keep its relevance in years to come.

Fahrenheit 9/11 may be taken either as screed or scripture, depending on your own political persuasions. Moore's strength is that, either way, you can't ignore it.

Moore es un norteamericano inquieto que hace preguntas incómodas (Fahrenheit 9/11 es un documental que ofrece más preguntas que respuestas)
