Fahrenheit 9/11 Reviews

January 7, 2019
The good stuff -- and there's some extremely good stuff -- keeps getting tainted by Mr. Moore's poison-camera penchant for drawing dark inferences from dubious evidence.
August 7, 2004
This is the most comprehensive diatribe ever filmed against Bush and his cronies (even though, by necessity, it is focused primarily on Iraq).
August 1, 2004
This is Moore's most powerful movie -- the largest in scope, the most resourceful and skillful in means -- and the best things in it have little to do with his usual ideological take on American power and George Bush.
July 11, 2004
Sometimes slipshod in its making and juvenile in its travesty, and of course it has no interest in overall fairness to Bush. But it vents an anger about this presidency that, as the film's ardent reception shows, seethes in very many of us.
July 3, 2004
Little of this information is new, but Moore packages what's already known about George W. Bush and his presidency into a piece of rhetoric so persuasive that the Bush reelection campaign could spend the next five months trying to refute it.
July 3, 2004
An enormous film, an angry film, a flawed film and often a very, very funny film.
June 30, 2004
Potent and infuriating.
Top Critic
June 30, 2004
Undeniably galvanizing, immensely watchable and damned good filmmaking.
June 30, 2004
I urge all my readers to see the film and judge it for yourselves. It is, at the very least, one of the most thought-provoking releases of the year.
June 25, 2004
The best thing about Fahrenheit 9/11 is that viewers can disagree with the filmmaker's own assessment that the war was fought for money and power but still emerge with some healthy questions of their own.
June 25, 2004
Unlike Bowling For Columbine, which editorially often seemed something less than the sum of its sketch-comedy parts, Fahrenheit 9/11 makes its case carefully and clearly.
June 25, 2004
The most focused work of the director's career.
June 25, 2004
Michael Moore's best film.
June 25, 2004
A seductive blend of satire, editorializing and, sometimes, propaganda.
June 25, 2004
One every American should see.
June 25, 2004
As an exercise in filmmaking, this picture bears a curious resemblance to the very debacle under review.
June 25, 2004
A film every citizen of voting age in America should see.
June 25, 2004
Fahrenheit 9/11 can be funny, moving and shocking, but it's also manipulative and not above the occasional cheap shot.
June 25, 2004
At its best, the film is also a powerful, furious, loving -- and, at times, manipulative -- treatise on family values.
June 24, 2004
Fahrenheit 9/11 isn't a cogent, revelatory exposé, but a dizzying compendium of facts and opinions, wrapped up in a heartfelt, passionate, surprisingly moving package.
