    Moore's supporters are quick to impugn the liberal credentials of anyone who criticizes his presentation of the information he digs up (or, in some cases, makes up). For them, Michael Moore is the issues he talks about, so his detractors must be enemies of democratic principles. It's an old trick, akin to the way Pauline Kael was accused of being insensitive about the Holocaust when she didn't like "Shoah."

    It's clear that Michael Moore often has his own agenda, but I'm sure if he could prove any of the things he says in this film, a lot of people would be in prison. Some things are VERY interesting and really makes you think, while other stuff is complete bull meant to serve his personal agenda, never the less, it was entertaining and it does gives you something to think about.

    A very superficial, but critical look at the events of 9/11 and everything that followed afterwards. Having seen this in the late 2000's after previously watching many documentaries about 9/11 possibly being a conspiracy perpetrated by rich powerful men, possibly some in or with connections to people within the US government, I found this film to be really superficial and timid in asking any tough questions. I highly recommend you watch the Internet movie "Loose Change" instead, the 2nd edition if you can find it. But Fahrenheit 9/11 is alright, just don't use it as your main source of information.

    A good documentary but your enjoyment of it will depend too much on how you feel about sensitive political issues. I believe that most of what is portrayed here is relevant and true and wish more people would at least have an open mind about this. Full Review »
