5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent insight into the Fox News circus, 25 Nov. 2004
Outfoxed exposes the threat posed by blatantly pro-Republican Fox News Channel. If you've ever (briefly) watched Fox News, you probably appreciated the comedy value of this propaganda machine, but the problem lies with US viewers who actually believe these are the real news.
Outfoxed doesn't really expose anything new for those who are a little informed, but its value lies in the fact that it may be an eye opener for many unaware viewers. The documentary is also good to enjoy a few laughs at the expense of Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity & co. Very unsettling.

4.0 out of 5 stars More touching than you'd expect, 6 Dec. 2002
I was drawn to this movie mainly by curiosity: I expected it to rely solely on the shock factor and expected to be completely grossed-out by the scenes I had heard about.
Bob Flanagan was an artist who suffered from cystic fibrosis (CP). Sufferers from this condition usually don't live past their late teens, but Bob survived until the age of 43. In this movie the viewer sees how he copes with his illness, but not from a medical point of view: Bob has become an adept of SM in order to take control of his body and for once master his sufferings.
While the movie is undeniably gross, it does contain a deeper meaning which is more evident than anyone would possibly expect. It is also a fun documentary since Bob had a great sense of humour.
Ultimately you watch Bob's death in his hospital bed and it is hard not to be legitimately saddened with the departure of a person whose creativity and sense of humour were daring and ground-breaking.
