Hailed as Michael Moore's most powerful movie yet, "Fahrenheit 11/9" is a provocative and comedic look at the times in which we live. It explores 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? (Gary Reber)

The 1.78:1 1080p AVC picture, reviewed on a Sony Bravia Z9D 4K Ultra HD HDR display, upconverted to 2160p with greater resolution and luminance, was photographed digitally and sourced from a 2K master Digital Intermediate format.The picture is quite good, combining archival news footage and photos, both in color and black-and-white, and live interviews, always with bright images. Color fidelity is good with vibrant hues and generally natural in context. Contrast also is good with deep black and bright, natural highlights. Resolution is good as well, with fine detail exhibited throughout. Overall, this is an impressive documentary picture that effectively tells the political sentiments as presented by Michael Moore exposing reality. This is a must-view documentary with issues that EVERY American should pay serious attention to and take the necessary action to reverse course and create a America that we can all be proud of and in which EVERY American is safe, healthy, and generally affluent. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel is rather dynamic sounding with driving and powerful music that fills the soundfield. Of course, this is a dialogue-focused soundtrack with actual Americans speaking out and Michael Moore providing narration as well as interviewing various citizens. Dialogue is intelligible throughout. The soundtrack varies from monaural to strong surround. The real focus here is on the political disruptions and advocacy delivered by this powerful soundtrack. The result is a message of real truth. (Gary Reber)
