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 of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the Pentagon and World Trade Center, Moore digs deep into the surprising relationship with the Bin Laden family held by both Bush administrations, and questions whether or not potential Saudi involvement with the attacks has been ignored. As Fahrenheit 9/11's Cannes Film Festival debut approached, marking only the second time in 48 years that a documentary has been included among the festival's main competition, Miramax's parent company Disney announced it would not be distributing the film due to its partisan nature, and, according to Moore, out of trepidation that the Florida-based Goliath's multi-million-dollar tax breaks might be negatively affected by Florida Governor Jeb Bush, whose review within Fahrenheit 9/11 is less than favorable. ~ Tracie Cooper, All Movie Guide

Great showmen by speakreflection October 13, 2006 - 3:56 PM PDT
Michael Moore for me runs just above PT Barnum. He runs this course in what could of been titled Bush 9/11. You can feel the contempt he has for the Bush family. BUT many of the things he says and many of the facts that come out in this documentary should be discussed and proven or disproven. I may not agree with most of what he puts out, but I don't agree with much of what people say who hate him too. Maybe he is a selfish self promoter, but he is trying to make some sort of difference no matter how misguided it seems at times.

Michael Moore devised this film to expose Bush, which is fine; dissent is important. Unfortunately, Moore paints a one-sided picture of the conspiracy to kill thousands of Americans on 9/11. This is evident by what Moore does NOT expose in his film. Moore ignores the Democrat crimes in connection to terrorism completely, because he is a socialist who wanted Kerry elected. No mention of the Clinton/Reno mass-murder in Waco, the Oklahoma City cover-up, or of Clinton's repeated protection of Osama bin Laden! No mention of the fact that Kerry and Bush are related, or that they both swore a secret allegiance to the Order of the Skull and Bones. None of that bothers Moore, because he WANTS to see our national sovereignty taken from us, and handed over to international elites that control both major parties.

Moore only shows you what he wants you to see. If you can handle the Big Picture, I suggest viewing documentaries by Alex Jones such as "911: Road to Tyranny", and "Masters of Terror" ( Alex Jones is a true patriot who wants to restore our Constitutional Republic; Moore is a willing stooge of the same elites he pretends to oppose, and this film conceals as much as it exposes.

War is pointless.
The government lies.
People are stupid.
So it goes, so it goes, so it goes.
