Fahrenheit 9/11

Movie Summary

Director:
Michael Moore
Released:
2004
Rating:
R
Fahrenheit 9/11 is a documentary film aimed to expose many secrets behind the Bush Administration and the War on Iraq created by legendary filmmaker Michael Moore (Bowling for Columbine, Sicko, Capitalism: A Love Story). The film, released during 2004 at the Cannes Film Festival, is the most successful documentary ever made - grossing more than $200 million dollars in revenue. Moore opens with a criticism of George W. Bush and his 'elite' team of experts who handled the aftermath of the 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in a questionable manner. He then shifts his focus to the war on terrorism, in which he argues Bush's justification for war has several inconsistencies or plot holes. Fahrenheit 9/11 undoubtedly changed many people's views of the Bush Administration and the War on Iraq. At the very least, this film will offer a different perspective on most topics you've become familiar with through mainstream media. Check out Fahrenheit 9/11 - an allusion to Ray Bradbury's book Fahrenheit 451 - today!moreless
