Recounts the controversy around George Bush's narrow election victory, the response to 9/11 and the war on Iraq while theorising about conspiracies involving the US president.
Produced, written and directed by Michael Moore, Fahrenheit 9/11's agenda is the war on terrorism and the Bush Dynasty. Utilising archival footage, expert testimony and his unique interview style, Moore confronts us with what he regards as much-neglected facts. Polemics with a punch, force us to acknowledge the many unanswered questions of the Bush presidency. Moore also shows us the totality of war on both sides in terms of human loss - something sadly missing from what was supposedly the most extensively covered war to date.
Sure you can call it poorly edited, raw quality, propaganda and sentimental. But in its totality, 9/11 transcends its flaws to deliver one of the most insightful documentaries ever made. In a "democratic" society we must have a counterfoil in the media to make governing officials accountable. "Who will watch the watchers?" Before we shoot the messenger, let's all take the time to examine the message.
