Fuck (2005)

Cast: Reinhold Albert Aman, Steven Bochco, Pat Boone, more...
Director: Steve Anderson
    see all cast/crew...
Rating: Not Rated
Studio: Velocity / Thinkfilm
Genre: Documentary
Running Time: 90 min.

The Queen Mother of all dirty words (as it was once described by Jean Shepherd) is examined through all its linguistic, sociological, legal, and ethical implications in this documentary. Filmmaker Steven Anderson interviews dozens of people about the history and function of "the F word," including language historians who have a hard time nailing down its origin, writers (including Hunter S. Thompson and Ben Bradlee) who talk about its role in literature and press freedom, comedians (among them Drew Carey, Janeane Garofalo, and Billy Connolly) who ponder its frequent presence in hipster humor, pop musicians (such as Ice-T, Pat Boone, and Alanis Morissette) who offer their theories about its role in contemporary culture, and social critics (including Michael Medved and Dennis Prager) who believe its currency is taking America into a dangerous place. F*ck also includes footage of famous figures caught using the word unexpectedly and animated sequences by Bill Plympton. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

I don't recommend 'Fuck' by vuzh September 17, 2011 - 10:01 PM PDT

This is an awful 'documentary', supposedly about the history and varied colloquial use of the word "fuck", made up mostly of film clips and really severely edited interview snippets that fly by at such a break-neck pace that you can't tell what any interviewee's real point is.

No context is given for anything and there's no ultimate point to anything in this movie other than maybe "fuck the squares".

I wish the editor could have calmed the fuck down and let an interviewee finish a complete thought, because it looks like some them might have had something interesting to say. Instead the movie only bothers to linger and dwell on inane things like Billy Connolly making farty noises with his lips.

Stupid, stupid, stupid movie.
