Fahrenheit 11/9 Movie Review

Michael Moore directs and stars in Fahrenheit 11/9

A Bridge Too Far

Rotten Tomatoes Plot: Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 11/9" is a provocative and comedic look at the times in which we live. It will explore the two most important questions of the Trump Era: How the f**k did we get here, and how the f**k do we get out? It's the film to see before it's too late.

Once upon a time, Moore made documentaries that challenged presidents and corporate America. They were entertaining, funny and poignant. That was then. Fahrenheit 11/9 is now, and the difference is like night and day. There's still bits of humor; but his latest doc is disjointed, mean-spirited, and has very little to do with Donald Trump... save for easy comparisons to Adolf Hitler and sleazy allegations of a sexual relationship with his daughter Ivanka. In between, he wages justifiable war on Michigan Governor Rick Snyder, while examining/rehashing troubles in his hometown (Flint, Michigan) for the umpteenth time. Bor-ing.

Grade: D
