gratuitous
mostly out of context, opportunistic and amateurish as moore always is. Watched it, thought about it, evacuated it from my brain.

The only value in this one is making you aware of just how cosy the Royal House of Saud and the the Bush Royal Family are. - Cee , posted 06/07/07

A let down
I loved the movie when I saw it, but when I sat down and thought about it I realized that there was nothing there. We got almost no facts, nothing to grasp or hold on to. What little there was is suspect. It's no different than the claptrap and lies FOX news puts out, only this time it comes from the left.

And for the record, I'm a full on war-hating impeach-Bush now leftie fag. - aterapan , posted 05/23/06

Compelling Films Spark Discussion
The broad range of passionate opinions here speaks volume to the success of this film. Any good film (especially Documentaries) evokes discussion; mission accomplished, Mr. Moore.

While I understand the strong democratic (heh) bias in the film, I find it annoying that people point this out like it's a flaw that speaks for itself. Maybe we should start a discussion about Fox News and complain that it's too right-wing Republican! Where are the spoof shows ala Farenhype 911? ("Fox News" could be "Faux News") Why is it that being right of the spectrum is ok and if you're anywhere on the left, you must be insane? - Tom , posted 11/29/05

Pretty good for cutting through the B.S.
I watched it when it first came out and was fairly impressed. Some of it was a little sensationalized but it "hit the nail on the head" as far as government culpubility and raised some very disturbing questions as to just how much the government was involved in 9/11. The more I see of the bush atrocities the more I tend to believe the government had much more to do with 9/11 than just being incompetent. - Bob , posted 09/19/05

A breath of fresh air for open minded people
I think the movie was very thought provoking for people with open minds. for those who are closed minded blind supporters of the President, it probably was political muckraking. It made some valid points. I enjoyed it because it affirmed what I have known all the time. It was like seeing my views glorified on the screen before the world. - Charles , posted 09/16/05

It's just movie Poeple COME ON
I think when I look at what the best movies of all time have done, they simply tell
a story well. It doesn’t matter what kind of story you are telling or whom you are
telling it for. At the end of the day a good film is just a really well told story.
Whether or not it is truthful, factual, motivational or plain “eye candy” is always
out for debate on EVERY film not just controversial ones like this. In my opinion
this was a well-told story and it’s okay that Michael told the tale through his own
lens. Not all filmmaker have to be objective and perfectly truthful…it’s the movies
for crying out loud, not the news (mind you-even they don’t tell the truth always,
and spin their own opinions on the stories!) My point is that this film was well
made and very entertaining and thought provoking. I think it’s great that it
stirred up so much controversy and got people thinking about all these issues.
Michael Moore considers himself first and foremost as a filmmaker, not a politician
or activist those side passions simply give him something to make films about. So
for everyone who wants to whine about films like these—just eat your popcorn and
watch the show…it is just a movie after-all not a document used in court to defend a
convicted murderer.

Completely out of context and false!
This movie is nothing more than a poor attempt by Moore, who is obviously a Democrat, to win an election. Unfortunately, when I checked out his so called "facts" they were either completely falsehoods or twisted 180 degress out of context. Clearly, a waste of my time. - Robert , posted 08/24/05

Moore is a Gineous!!!
Any one who hasn't seen this movie shoud see it. Any one who says that they don't want to bother seeing it, are just pretending that there is nothing wrong with this country and think Bush is a saint. I have talked to people that believe in Bush and those are the people that would not take their time to watch other things other than CNN. People need to open their minds and look at other fact and add them up. Moore is the man. He is not afraid to satnd up for what he believes in and we should all be more like that. Look at how our America is. The greatest country on Erth they call it. Well I don't know about that, with the man that is running our country and our lifes we are prisoners of his unthoughtful decisions. He is not senrving our country, he is serving his own needs. i meen just listen to him. Eve a 12 year old is a better speaker than he is. - Lisa , posted 06/24/05

Moore moors on entertainment
Bloody good entertainment. Political rug-slipping is always a sure-fire win, and Moore does this in this firey film. Whereas Moore has stated that all his facts check out, which researching them prooves true, a good chunk of it presents itself very "cut and paste," a media favorite for taking words out of context. Let's start with this review: "Bloody rug always a sure-fire win!" And "...facts proove[s] a chunk cut with this review." I said all of those things, just not in that context or order. - Unsubscribed , posted 05/25/05

I think the movie holds truth!
I liked the movie.No I'm not a Bush supporter,but I saw the movie with a open mind and although some of the things that were shown were hard to swallow,the movie on a whole was right on the money. Everyone knows that papa bush has STRONG political and financial ties to the arabs who backed GWB in all of his ventures. That one of the first things he did after the attacks was to get "their" families out of the country. He attacked and knowingly lied to us about the WMD in Iraq, and now is going to drill in Alaska. This all =oil!! Moore points this out to us as well as money is power and he has it. Michael Moore is just a common,average person who is not afraid to say things or show them as they really are. 5 stars to him and the movie. - Unsubscribed , posted 04/22/05

There are none so blind as those who will not see...
If you watch the movie, he documents every single one of his statements with information, mostly from sources like the Washington Post, NYT, and official government documents. Was it a tad over dramatic? Yes. Was it propaganda? Maybe. Was it made up? Absolutely not. But if you want to believe that , go right ahead.

The thing that saddens me is that we have far more evidence in the public domain about how coporate interests have purchased our political system than we ever did about Nixon's wrongdoings, but no one seems to care. The government says that all that data that they actually wrote doesn't really mean what it says, and if you ask questions you are unAmerican.

Orwelll said that it wasn't amazing that you could train sheep to jump through a hoop, but that they will continue to jump as though the hoop were there after it has been removed. I don't know why the people who hate this movie can't see that they've been programmed to jump through the hoop even when the spinmeisters aren't around. - Unsubscribed , posted 04/18/05

Propaganda, really, are you really sure?
Man, the reviews below are too funny. Saying F911 is propaganda is like saying Milk is white. Wow what a revelation. You guys have been going to film critic school, to see so deep inside this movie.

Well, yes of course it's propaganda, obviously Moore made it this way on purpose. What do you think the extreme right-wingers of your country do all day? What do you think Fox is doing? What do you think the Federalist Society is doing? Freaking propaganda. Moore only used their weapon against them. It seems that your people are idiotic enough to believe the propaganda from the right wingers to vote for Bush, why wouldn't they believe in propaganda movie, but this time from the other side of the spectrum.

Now is it successful in terms of the propaganda? I'm not sure I don't live in b/w the east and west coast, the area that votes republican blindly without knowing how they're paying the consquences everyday. But this is a first piece of propaganda from the opposite side of the right-wing.. one piece is not enough to make a difference against the billion $$ right-wing propaganda machine. But it's a start. Is it the right method? I don't know, but what have the other side of the political spectrum done? They seem a little too quiet to the point I'm actually wondering if they're not just puppets hired by the right-wingers to pretend there's a show going on. So then what's for the regular people like us, well maybe people like Moore trying something. Moore didn't try to make a movie for you to go watch, if you already know that you shouldn't vote republicans, he's made a movie to convince some republican voters to vote something else. And obviously the republican voters react well to the propaganda, Bush was elected....

So now, whoever the smart minds below are, thinking that Moore did a piece without knowing he was doing obvious propaganda, that he really tried to make those tears come out of your eyes, you should truly ask yourself: are you making a difference in the war against Bush by not thinking with your little brains, by not understanding how you can help by distributing this movie to your families who vote Bush and discussing the issue exposed in the movies and more?

To my humble opinion, to my taste in film, to judge the film within the art of cinema, of course it's not a good movie, I couldn't even enjoy. The moment where he's playing this music, and showing you horrible things, and talking to you like if he was a preast is pretty much unbearable to me. Using propaganda against propaganda might not be an answer, but it has worked in history. And I respect him for trying. I respect him for targeting a crowd of people who vote for Bush, and that will suffer every single bill the fucker will pass, it's maybe a first to opening the eyes of some.

So please again remove the shit stuck in your brain and see a little further than yourself, when you're writing about a movie.

One last thing, why did you think Cannes gave him the highest price? Do you think that they thought this movie was a pearl of the 7th art? - mad , posted 04/08/05

He's on his way out
I think Michael Moore is on his way out. His sensationalism has created an over exposure. There will always be die hard fans, but for the most part people will get tired of him. I think this movie was just political propaganda, his misleading editing and emotional play skews the perspective. - Nate , posted 03/23/05

Fahrenheit911 is pure crap!!
Trust me, I am not a right wing republican, but this movie is full of crap. If you want to be objective about it, watch Farenheit911 first, and then watch farenhype911. Anyone with an open mind, who wants to seek the "truth" will see what a mess Michael Moore has made. Dont Take my word for it check it out for yourself, but you have to see farenhype911 to be objective. - Michael , posted 03/15/05

Propaganda
For anyone with five minutes, a brain, and the ability to use a search engine, F911 can be torn to shreads. Moore is a *great* film maker, in that he can edit his way into astounding levels of deception... he deals in *impressions*. Impressions of "connections", impressions of "wrongdoing". You can come to know Moore most by what he does *not* say (when you know he wishes he could). Only "True Believers" need apply. - Spaceman Spiff , posted 03/08/05

The Man v the Film
The man is a slob. The film, however, is a wonderfully edited look at the motivation of a President bent on addressing a non-existent threat to our national security. The war on terror is being fought on neutral territory. And only a few in Congress can state that they ahve blood relatives fighting there. A binding referendum on the war would appropriately represent those fighting it. - GnR , posted 03/05/05

Agiprop Slop
When conducting even a humorous attack on the popular powers, I think you should either be artistically inaccurate (like a fevered dream) or strive for objective truth. Moore pretends to do the latter and in so doing falls short of the former. - Robert , posted 02/20/05

Very good film making
The point of a film is to move you. Weather you liked it or not he can sure "move" you. Also this picture is made with Moores opinions and with his style. With out a doubt that will have an effect that is different on different people. All in all it is filled with solid facts and solid points made. From that perspective anyone who has a problem with those things has a problem with truth itself. May you Burn in your ignorance. - TJ , posted 12/29/04

Riefenstahlian Agit-Prop
Michael Moore's agitative propaganda (agit-prop) evokes the style perfected by the magnificent Leni Riefenstahl in her masterpiece 'Triumph of the Will' - another so-called documentary about the sixth Nazi Party Congress of 1934. Moore's recent lèse majesté, Fahrenheit 911, summons the vulgar, deranged dimension of 'Triumph' without Riefenstahl's transcendental qualities and epic mastery.

Most clever Americans reject Moore's flimsy agit-prop exploitation yet are often entertained by this puffy, lovable buffoon.

The ironic consequence of the negligent Fahrenheit 911 is wholesale repudiation of its very thesis and disillusionment with its activist platform.

The coarse tactics will sharply advance the prospects of the current administration for these reasons. In short, F911 virtually assures W's reelection. The minute this film was released it guaranteed another historic GOP sweep. In fact, Karl Rove (Bush Brain) is probably saying, 'Bring it on!'

What's outrageous is the F911 circus sideshow made matters much worse for legitimate Bush opponents. Are people so dim as not to get this point? The phony, obese Moore is laughing in our face and counting his $$$ millions like a great Republican.

Moore deserves the 2004 Chutzpah Award.

As for the Europeans, the bulls weren’t only running at Pamplona this year, there was a lot of bull at Cannes too.

Don't think for one minute F911 is showing you all of interviews in full. He is picking and editing what he wants us to see and hear, as most of the media today does. Death and dishonesty sell much better them happiness and peace.
I was born in this country but my mother and her family our from Iraq. We still have family living in Iraq and Jordan. When we get a chance to speak to them they tell us great stories of American solders building schools and helping the Iraqi people. Not every thing we are told by the media and Moore is true, but that is part of what makes this country so great. We have a right to choose what we believe, and your neighbors have a right to disagree with you. God Bless American. - Tina , posted 07/11/04

A film that might get people thinking and talking.
It doesn't matter if you like or dislike GWB. This film should trigger discussions in your head and hopefully with others about the direction of our country. Gotta watch it with a critical eye and open mind. Is GWB a master,loaded$, and connected politician or a guy that got lucky? Decide for yourself.

powerful filmmaking
I thought the way the film was made was a testament to Moore's ability as a filmmaker. He's clearly a biased person, and I don't think this can truly be called a "documentary." Nevertheless, it's a great film. I agree with most of what he says, despite the obvious bias and the way he plays to emotion. I believe Bush lies somewhere between antichrist and dumb son of a bitch, and that's clearly conveyed in the film. Bush must be stopped, and hopefully Moore's latest film helps in this respect. - Unsubscribed , posted 07/09/04

American History Balancing....
American history has always told the story of the great American do-gooder and the awful enemy the 'evil-doer's'... this film evens the score just a bit and puts it all in perspective. If you haven't seen it... go, right now and take 12 of your friends. - Dream , posted 07/08/04
Everyon should see this, thought provoking
I very much enjoyed F911 overall. There were some grisly war dipictions, but what war doesn't have that? While that was grusome and troubling, it wasn't what I found most disturbing. There were many things that were not general knowledge (perhaps public but not common), that disturbed me and got me ruffled up against the Bush Family/Administration more now then ever.

All these facts were presented in a very compelling and many times amusing or humorous way. So it there was some good laughs along the way mixed in with the more sobering issues.

I think this is a film that everyone should see, regardless of political affiliation or personal beliefs.
I feel like I walked away from the film with a little more insight and a bit more personal ambition to monitor and contribule to our government's goings on. - Twinkle , posted 07/08/04

Michael Moore gives us his Personal view of Bush
I loved Mr. Moore Bravery and ability to get this film marketed in this day and age of the patriot act, reduced civil liberties, people getting interrogated just for disliking BUSH. Yes, the movie is slanted to Moore's point of view, but what documentary is not to some degree.

This movie is for those who can deal with GRAPHIC images of death, beheadings, blood, guts hanging out of burned up children, women screaming, men fighting for their lives, U. S. Senators who WON'T send their kids to fight in the war, a US government who won't support the Black Cacus after Bush stole the Election and etc. and etc...

Be ready to think and rethink things and perhaps do your own advocacy for PEACE.

Sincerely,
Ms. Heart

ALSO: Michael Moore is featured in the movie THE CORPORATION. It is playing at the Lumiere Theatre on California St., in SF. It is a wonderful documentary about industrialization, capitalism, Corporations, responsibility of business and the political power is now in the hands of THE CORPORATIONS.

Moore makes tremendous use of public footage of Bush Administration officials to relentlessly hammer at the duplicity underpinning their case for the Iraq war.
