Introduction

Fahrenheit 9/11 Analysis In this essay I will be analysing all the key concepts of this film, "Fahrenheit 9/11" by Michael Moore, it is an untypical film in the genre of a documentary. This film generates controversy and political debate that has changed people's views about President Bush following September the 11th 2001 disaster and the election process. This Documentary is a determinedly truthful, shocking, scathingly funny, intensely thought-provoking and thoroughly entertaining. Moore uses his characteristically sarcastic humour and uniquely persistent style to launch an unflinching inquiry into the Bush government's foreign policy. Combining rare footage, expert testimony, and his fight to find answers to complicated questions, Moore takes on all issues facing America in the year when this film was made. He produces very sceptical views about President George W. Bush in the way Bush ignored the Saudi connection to 9/11 and instead rushed headlong towards war on Iraq. Michael Moore gives us the impression that everyone is against President Bush, in the way he is presented, looking ridiculous, almost like a childish character. ...read more.

Middle

The actuality footage is evidence of what we see (i.e. Denotation) shows Mr Bush and his team in the white house during his daily work schedule and the preparation that goes into it. However the Connotation that Michael Moore wishes us to understand is one of a corrupt white house, Moore has only chosen footage that puts Bush in a bad light., with his use of institutional sources in the media creating an aura of endless threat from the terrorists. It is assumed that the audience doesn't know anything and feels confident in their president. The Documentary narrative gives the audience a history before 9/11 occurred i.e. the fiasco of the election and Bush's connections with Saudi Arabia, the Taliban and Sadam Hussein. Thus Creating Mr Bush as a villain because of his bad judgment and the way he dealt with the aftermath of the crisis and the effect that it had upon the American people, who are the target audience. ...read more.

Conclusion

and the use of written text and documentation, is proof of things existing .Also by interviewing random people off the street to give their opinions (Vox pops) would make it more relevant. The fact that Michael Moore interviewed Britney Spears would have appealed to the younger generation. Age, gender and background would influence people's reaction and evaluation to this text, also a person's preconceived opinion of Mr Bush prior to seeing this documentary. In my opinion it appears that George Bush is still popular with some of the people however he is portrayed as a figure of ridicule. I think this documentary has got positive value in that it has highlighted many aspects that everyone should be aware of i.e. Bush's connections with the Saudi's and the vast profits from oil and the apparent alteration of certain documents from his army career. Also the visible recordings and disruptions of fighting in Iraq highlighting the horror's of war and the desperation of the mother who lost her son. ?? ?? ?? ?? Leo Magill ...read more.
