  • Academy Award-winning director Michael Moore examines the Bush administration's financial ties to Saudi Arabia and the bin Laden family in FAHRENHEIT 9/11, a well-researched, fast-paced, highly controversial, and important documentary that won the Palme d'Or at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival. Using actual footage and declassified documents, Moore takes a detailed look into political events both before and after the attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, beginning with the polarizing Supreme Court decision that ultimately gave the state of Florida and the 2000 election to George W. Bush. Moore reveals how the U.S. government helped the bin Laden family return to Saudi Arabia immediately after September 11, when all other flights were still grounded; and examines military recruiting techniques in such poor areas as his own hometown of Flint, Michigan. He even attempts to get congressmen to enlist their own sons and daughters into the military. The writer-director also visits with the troops, including at a VA hospital where soldiers are having second thoughts about America's involvement in Iraq, and spends time with a family whose eldest son is fighting in Iraq. FAHRENHEIT 9/11 is a worthy successor to Moore's previous documentaries, ROGER & ME, THE BIG ONE, and BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE, once again shining a light on the past, present, and future of the US.

  • Critic Reviews
    "Moore has marshaled what's on the record and off into a stinging indictment of where we're going."
    Rolling Stone

    "[A] potent and infuriating fight-the-power documentary..."
    Entertainment Weekly

    "[An] authentic and indispensable document of its time..."
    New York Times

    "Moore is grass-roots politics' own gorilla film-maker, an instantly recognisable gadfly guru..."
    Uncut

    "It rockets through the thickest of geo-politics, stopping for snapshots from this angle and that, leaving in its wake a bracingly kinetic portrait of an atavistic fool."
