Film Review // Fahrenheit 9/11

CC-by-sa & literature

Documentarians always have their own points of view, but Michael Moore takes what he needs to convince his audience of his political opinion. Moore produced this film with the explicit goal to prohibit the reelection of George Bush. The Movie is filled with controversy. As footage he used many cuts of tv-news and ‚personal‘ interviews made by himself with a big portion of dry sarcasm.
The title of the film refers to Ray Bradbury’s 1953 novel Fahrenheit 451, a view of the future United States, drawing an analogy between the burning temperature of paper and the date of the September 11 attacks.
