Fahrenheit 9/11 is a loosely termed “documentary” film by filmmaker Michael Moore. The movie was released in 2004 and gives a liberal view of President George W. Bush and his actions in the 9/11 events and through the War on Terrorism. In Fahrenheit 9/11, the director portrays American media in poor fashion and questions the rationale for the war in Iraq. The film’s accuracy has been widely disputed and is generally thought of to be much closer to fiction than a documentary. Regardless, this Michael Moore film is entertaining enough to have sold many tickets to movie goers and the Fahrenheit 9/11 DVD has been successful as well.
Fahrenheit 9/11’s title most likely was a play on Ray Bradbury’s novel Fahrenheit 451, which depicts a hedonistic view of the future of America.
