The most financially successful documentary in history, Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11 debuted on DVD less than four months after its initial theatrical run in order to maximize any effect it might have had on the presidential election of 2004. The disc offers the film in a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.78:1. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1. English subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include nearly a dozen new scenes, including testimony in front of the 9/11 commission, eyewitness accounts from the war in Iraq, and a featurette on the release of the film. Although this initial DVD release does not boast all the bells and whistles that came with the DVD for Bowling for Columbine, this is still a worthwhile disc.

While the seven minutes of Bush's 'deer in the headlights' look after being told of the WTC disaster is damning enough, I wish Mr. Moore could have also included the 20 minutes of 'photo op' Bush spent with supporters AFTER the 7 minutes! While our country burned, Bush 'fiddled'. F9/11 is a must see for anyone who cares about America.
Excellent movie that really is thought provoking. Provides a lot of information--both true and what seems to be perhaps speculation--but nonetheless really makes voters think in this upcoming election. VERY worthwhile to watch before November (especially if you want time to research all of the stuff from his documentary).
This film asks viewers to think and question status quo--any film that does that gets a thumbs up from me. Fahrenheit 9/11 in particular raises major issues that American people should be informing themselves on, regardless of their political party. Moore has taken a lot of heat, but it's misplaced. Approximately a dozen lawyers and fact-checkers hired by the film industry could not find any falsehoods within the movie; hence, the LACK of any kind of liable suits filed by an administration with the best lawyers on the planet. Hmmm. Think! It is NOT unpatriotic to question authority. In fact, you are socially obligated as a citizen of a FREE COUNTRY. Don¿t let those ¿Dixie Chic CD-Burners¿ tell you different! Take advantage of your freedom¿INFORM YOURSELVES beyond the mass media sound-bites and please do not forget to VOTE this November 2nd. It is your duty!!!!
Shows everything that there was to show. From the Saudi control of 7% of the Econemy to their connections to the Bush's. The internal aspects of Both wars and the way it afftected small town AMerica. The biggets thing that the movie showed was the heart felt love that the majority of Americans had for Al Gore, the true peopl's President.
Unlike the viewer who stated 'watch this movie if you have nothing else to do,' I strongly suggest that everybody make time to watch it even if you have several things to do. Not only is this documentary excellently produced, combining fascinating footage, a riveting plot, and amazingly apt song choices, it also provokes deep thoughts about the 43rd presidency and the general state of American culture. Fahrenheit 9/11 is entertaining as well as factual, combining elements of tragedy and comedy into a seamless whole. This movie should be required watching for every American, whether eligible to vote or not. Please don't pass up on this movie, and definitely watch it before the elections! It will help you make an educated decision and provide you hours of great entertainment and discussion.
Informative and entertaining. Over the top in places. When you aren't laughing, you're cringing at the thought that G.W. ever became President. The cool thing is that M.Moore cannot be sued for libel or slander because all quotes from G.W. are pulled from existing videotapes! Moore asks questions which every citizen should have been asking themselves the last four years.
If anyone wants to become aware of what's going on in politics, this is the movie. This film uncovers many things that have been swepted under the rug, and how we Americans are being screwed. Very informative film. If this film is not enough to make you decide on who you want to vote for this year, you must be related to Bushs'. Dumb, Dumber, and Dumberer. Father, son, and you. Watch it; you won't regret. I guarentee you.
If we didn't have Michael Moore, we would need to invent him. Instead of name calling and belittling those who disagee, as do the conservative talk shows do, he presents hard facts. This movie connects the dots and makes anyone who has the capacity to think, think!
MOORES MOVIE IS PROPAGANDA FOR SIMPLE LIBERALS WHO CANNOT THINK FOR THEMSELVES:- PLAIN AND SIMPLE
A must see by anyone American and all upholders of Democracy. A sixth star would be added if it were possible. Peace...
This move is a must see for every American Citizen!! You will be angered by the information exposed and want to dig for more details. Michael Moore's brilliant research capabilities reveals our current President to be a liar on top of a thief who with the help of his brother in FL, won the last election. I challenge the Republicans out there to see this film and then think about who you will vote for in November. Though biased against the current administration, the facts speak for themselves -- and that no bias can contest.
This documentary should be required viewing for every American. As a person who gets my news from alternative as well as traditional news sources this film did not tell me anything I already did not know. What it did, however, was bring it all home. Listening to the soldiers in Iraq and the woman who lost her son in Iraq gives a whole new perspective.
It's wonderful, I've seen the movie in the cinema, and at the end I stood up and start sending kisses to Mr. Moore .. He is the voice of the real Americans, the Arabs and every innocent human in this cruel world.
Finally, the truth about this 'president' and his 'loyalties' has been revealed. America must remember that 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudi Arabian-not one was Iraqi. Mr. Moore may have the answer as to why the Bush Administration has yet to lay a finger on the Saudis. This film is factual; documents are shown, government officials and military personnel are interviewed. This film does what the media used to do-ask questions of our leaders, find the truth and inform the public. Based upon the facts uncovered by Mr. Moore, the American journalists clearly failed us at the start of the Iraq war. Now the public must inform and arm themselves with the truth in order to make the right choice at the ballot box. Lives are at stake. Thousands of Americans died on 9/11, now almost 1,000 Americans have died in Iraq- for what? America, see this movie, it is informative and at the very most - patriotic. Mr. Moore clearly loves this country. He's trying to save it and the lives of our young men and women. Mr. Moore has also thrown in some satire so that you can laugh in between the tears and the shock.
Incredibly entertaining, this movie had all the suspense of an Agatha Christie movie. Sounds crazy? Watch it and you'll see. At the show, people sat in rapt attention. It's the only movie I've been to in years where the audience stayed to watch all the credits and actually applauded and whistled when it ended. Fantastic - don't miss it!
Try as I might, I can't think of any other time anyone in the media came out so totally against a sitting President. Sure, they went after Clinton but the effort was through the courts where enough money can stretch litigation out forever. With the nearing election, time is short and Moore has gone straight to the people as only he can.
In the case of Fahrenheit 9/11, Michael Moore takes little innocuous snippets from leading actors in the Bush administration and assembles them into a powerful indictment against his re-election. Even if you take everything Moore says in the documentary as untrue, which it most certainly is not, the remaining video clips starring Bush himself seals the deal. This is not a man we want running our country for four more years.
If you're a Bush fan, do yourself a favor and see this movie; especially if you are a Bush fan. Think of it as a right of passage you must complete before casting your vote. If you see Fahrenheit 9/11 and still think Bush is our best candidate for President, then go to the polls with an easy heart. Otherwise, you risk making the same mistake so many made with Nixon back in 1972. Nixon told us he was not a crook and we believed him. There's no reason to repeat that error again.
This movie was entertaining at times but at others it dragged. Also I have always found politics boring and this movie did not change that. If i do vote this year, this movie did not help me decide who to vote for. I would recomend this movie if you have nothing else to do or if your interested in political stuff.
We always think of countries like Italy and India as being corrupt... well, this is the master of all corruption in the world... Hats off to Michael Moore, who had the guts to say the truth, and who has the interest of the American people and the greater humanity at heart..
Michael Moore reigns himself in to give his material the gravitas it deserves. This is an important movie that every US voter should see before November 2nd. I'm happy to see it is being so quickly released to DVD to give it a broader audience. Be very afraid.
should not be missed. this is a must see!
...this has to be it! I don't much care for Michael Moore but this is one helluva film. I'm a VietNam vet and pretty tough skinned but I gotta admit I teared up several times during the movie. No matter your political outlook, you need to see this one.
This was a great work of propaganda!! Moore certaintly has a political agenda--I'm just glad that (relatively speaking) he's on our side. Admittedly, he does pick and choose what he believes is important to stress throught the documentary. However, it is important that someone with influence is taking Bush to task and attempting to inform voters (before it is too late) of the corruption surrounding Bush (and company) as well as the disregard of HUMAN life that the current war has wrought.
I have a relative and several friends fighting in Iraq. So, I'm very patriotic. But I think being a patriot also means to question our government and to get involved. This movie does that and more! Mr. Moore does an excellent job at revealing hidden agendas. He forces the American public to think! WoW what a concept!
This is the most important movie of the decade. Not necessarily a true 'documentary' rather than an expose' of the most corrupt administration to lead our country astray in our time. America is half asleep if they don't realize what is happening. As they say,'ignorance is bliss'...and we're one happy country!
