Directed by Michael Moore, whose aura of controversy only grew after his Oscar acceptance speech at the 2003 Academy Awards, Fahrenheit 9/11, like Moore's Bowling For Columbine and Roger & Me, promises to expose the corporate wrongdoings and big-money scandals perpetrated by America's financial elite. This movie, however, looks beyond the inner echelons of General Motors and Lockheed Martin in hopes of outing the evildoers in the White House, particularly in regards to the 43rd President of the United States, George W. Bush. In addition to criticizing the administration's handling… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This is the most comprehensive diatribe ever filmed against Bush and his cronies (even though, by necessity, it is focused primarily on Iraq)."
‑ Peter Rainer, New York Magazine
"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."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"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."
‑ Kent Jones, Film Comment Magazine
"People say Moore is Un-American for creating a documentary against the president, well, it's Un-American not to explore other's views."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"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."
‑ Prairie Miller, Long Island Press
"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."
‑ David Denby, New Yorker
"An enormous film, an angry film, a flawed film and often a very, very funny film."
‑ Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com
"Controversial documentary best for older teens."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Populist documentarian Michael Moore raises crucial questions about the ersatz presidency of George Bush in an air of simplicity and honest curiosity."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"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."
‑ Peter T. Chattaway, Christianity Today
"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."
‑ Stanley Kauffmann, The New Republic
"Potent and infuriating."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"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."
‑ Thomas Peyser, Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)
"Isn't quite the bullseye Moore's supporters are hoping for and Bush's supporters are dreading."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"Fahrenheit is, by turns, entertaining, incisive, infuriating, heartbreaking and (this being Moore) slickly populist"
‑ Jay Antani, Cinema Writer
