Much more than a scathing indictment of Dubya-era complicity, Michael Moore's exposť 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.

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.

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.
