Product Description

Amazon.ca

To anyone who truly understands what it means to be an American, Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11 should be seen as a triumph of patriotic freedom. Rarely has the First Amendment been exercised with such fervor and forthrightness of purpose: After subjecting himself to charges of factual errors in his gun-lobby exposé Bowling for Columbine, Moore armed himself with a platoon of reputable fact-checkers, an abundance of indisputable film and video footage, and his own ironically comedic sense of righteous indignation, with the singular intention of toppling the war-ravaged administration of President George W. Bush. It's the Bush presidency that Moore, with his provocative array of facts and figures, blames for corporate corruption, senseless death, unnecessary war, and political favoritism toward Osama Bin Laden's family and Saudi oil partners following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Moore's incendiary film earned Palme d'Or honors at Cannes and a predictable legion of detractors, but do yourself a favor: Ignore those who condemn the film without seeing it, and let the facts speak for themselves. By honoring American soldiers and the victims of 9/11 while condemning Bush's rationale for war in Iraq, Fahrenheit 9/11 may actually succeed in turning the tides of history. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars ~*~ Every American should watch this video~*~ Oct. 20 2004
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I just watched this video, and I am floored!! I have been a fan of Michael Moore's for awhile now, and was anxious to get my hands on a copy of this movie. This is one of his best! (If you haven't seen Bowling for Columbine...then you should definately see that one too!)
Michael Moore researches, and shows the world what many have been afraid to. He asks the big questions, and to date there has been no reaction from the White house. To me that says that there is truth in what he is saying. Michael Moore is very brave, and I believe he is doing great things for America. He gives a voice to those who have not had one for a long time.
Even if you hate his style....WATCH IT BEFORE YOU CRITICIZE!!
Instead of having blind faith, and trust that your government will do right by you...this film shows you that you should ask questions, know what is going on behind the scenes, and have an informend opinion...and an informed vote.
This is a film that needs to be seen. I loved it...And I am proud of you Michael Moore for having the courage to show the other side!
I urge every American to watch this eye opening...outstanding film.
PS- if you have a DVD player...get the DVD...it has many extra scenes that were not included in the original film, but are very interresting. This video is worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, but... Jan. 14 2005
By A Customer
Format:DVD
All around good movie, and worth the money to watch it. However, keep in mind that this documentary does not show the entire picture. Many different techniques are used to make politicians look incompetant and foolish. I think that some things were taken out of context as well.
Still, I really enjoyed this documentary. It contained a lot of information, and a few things that took me by surprise. Definitley worth watching.

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Propoganda, but a Middling Film Dec 5 2004
Format:DVD
Before starting my review, I should probably say that for the most part, I agree with Michael Moore's politics. I dislike president Bush and his regime, and think they have been very destructive in their first term (here's hoping the second term isn't so bad). That being said, Moore's controversial "Fahrenheit 9/11" is a disappointingly mixed bag. Unlike "Roger and Me" or "Bowling for Columbine," it's straight propoganda. Moore hits the audience over the head with his message, giving this reviewer a severe headache by the film's close. While Moore doesn't appear on camera as much as his previous films, his narration is near-constant - his narration combined with the endless news footage and documents gives this an irritating "slide show" or "court case" feeling. While Moore's previous films had interesting human stories, "Fahrenheit 9/11" gives us only the plight of Flint war mother Lila Lipscomb. Moore attempts some of his trademark pranking, but it's unsatisfactory (particularly in the awkward Patriot Act scene - a prank that peters out before a punchline). After a while, the film just gets dull. That being said, there is still plenty good to say about it - the scene where Lipscomb goes to capitol hill is undeniably moving, and much of the "found footage" (Bush in the classroom reading "My Pet Goat," the unforgettable "Now watch this drive" scene) is great, and many of the individual scenes (the opening, homeland security) are well done.
The DVD has the film in its original 1.85:1 aspect ratio. Since a startling amount of this movie is grainy news footage, there really isn't much the DVD can (or should) do. Suffice to say, the image looks good enough. The real value of the DVD is in the extras.

5.0 out of 5 stars I laughed, I cried, I sobbed in horror . . . Nov. 7 2004
Format:DVD
Politics is the only professional sport I follow; however, I really love a good documentary. I am Canadian and I didn't have much respect for Michael Moore after hearing I had been living in a national paradise all my life - as he promoted in "Bowling for Columbine." My dim view of his film making ability is entirely reversed by "Fahrenheit 9/11."
Moore has made a film that really transends the documentary genre. Everybody agrees that films like "Thin Blue Line", "Radio Bikini", and "Fog of War" are all incredible - I have seen them a number of times. Fahrenheit 9/11 leaves them in a dustbin as far superior.
This film provokes a lot of emotion, that is was distinguishes it from most documentaries that stir up only outrage, horror or intellectual sadness; although the movie brings in all those feelings in too. The film doesn't have the professional polish of a production like the "Fog of War" but I think that is intentional - it is clear Moore's object is the superficial productions and the polished presentation of the government Moore dislikes so strongly.
Granted, I am more sympathetic to Moore's political stance than perhaps a conservative American would be. I do have the perspective of my American and typically Republican voting wife to add objectivity to my review.
I really did laugh at some parts: John Ashcroft singing is really funny. The movie provoked the fear of September 11th without images, leaving the experience as personal and as unique as each viewer. I cried like a grandmother at the horrors of war and the parallels between the Iraqi woman and the Michigan mother.
Few dramatic movies have done what "Fahrenheit 9/11" has done. I can more than sympathize with the political obstacle faced by a conservative viewer would have to appreciate this movie. I have no doubt that it is the greatest documentary I have ever seen.
This is a must see movie.
