There may be spoilers the rest of the review
Verdict: Interesting Documentary
Story: Fahrenheit 9/11 starts as Michael Moore considers how the early days of George W Bush presidential days, how his approval rating crashed and he went on holiday to avoid the storm, that change on September the 11th 2001 when the terrorist attack happened. Now Moore looks at first how Bush reacted to the news and secondly how he was able to fund his campaign believing the money came from Saudi Arabia.
We continue to learn how Moore believes the aftermath of 9/11 was kept working in favour of Bush as he used the war in Afghanistan to gain profit in the oil industry, this film is a documentary looking at what certain people do believe, which is worrying because we are left to wonder just what could be true.
Thoughts on Fahrenheit 9/11
Final Thoughts – As time has passed since this movie was released, new parts of the story have been revealed. This does give us a one-sided discussion to what happened which is designed to open the doors to the controversial leader in Bush but it mostly just looking at how the war was fabricated over looking at the events of 9/11.
Overall: Watch for a one-sided history lesson
