Regardless of your politics, it's hard to dismiss the disturbing assertions of this cheaply made but powerful documentary.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

It's perhaps the year's most canny piece of propaganda... it soothes a sore spot, and it's very effective.

What Stealing America lacks in formal elegance it makes up for in important information that deserves far more compelling delivery, as does its call for a return to paper ballots.

Stealing America: Vote by Vote is sobering. The film suggests that come Nov. 4, the votes of Republicans, Democrats and independents alike might not be counted fair and square.

Amateurish but thorough with the tone of an ominous filmstrip. Right-wingers will cry "Paranoid!" but should we demand more neutrality from a film than we do of our elections?

If you need any more proof that a movie like Swing Vote is complete balderdash, with its fantasy about getting couch potatoes out to the polls as the cure-all for what ails America, then here is it.

Anyone who doubts for a second that the 2000 and 2004 U.S. Presidential elections were stolen by the Republicans using a methodical process of illegal machinations, should see this nightmare-inducing documentary on the subject.

Stealing America: Vote by Vote does for American democracy what An Inconvenient Truth did for global warming.

This well-crafted documentary about the purported theft of the 2004 presidential election could well be the feel-good movie of the summer -- after all, it absolves the general public for everything that happened.

America revisited as a post-democratic Banana Republic.

Does a fine job outlining the ways in which the integrity of the United States electoral process is repeatedly undermined by fraud, de facto disenfranchisement and the concerted efforts of corrupt politicos.

This is not so much a documentary ... as a recruiting tool. We never hear anything from the other side; and the film ends with a fulsome patriotic call to action.

more likely to depress voters than to galvanize them.

Stealing America is basically a rallying tool for activists.

It helps for a documentary about America's broken voting system to be flush with facts and outrage. But a little filmmaking wouldn't hurt, either.

The title is provocative and the timing is right for an examination of the elctorate process, but the data are tentative and anecdotal and the whole execution poor and clumsy.

Everybody loves a good conspiracy theory, and I'm more than willing to believe that Kerry really won. But Fadiman offers only circumstantial evidence when a smoking gun is needed.

Functions as an organizing tool for people worked up about the important issue, but is hardly suitable as a commercial doc release.
