Fuck

This challenging and provocative documentary takes a look on all sides of the infamous F-word. Its taboo, obscene and controversial, yet somehow seems to permeate every single aspect of our culture - from Hollywood... to the schoolyard to the Senate floor in Washington D.C. It's the word at the very center of the debate on Free Speech - and everyone seems to have an opinion. FUCK will exam how the word is impacting our world today thru interviews, film and television clips, music, and original animation by Oscar nominee Bill Plympton. 2.1 out of 5 based on 7 reviews

Variety

John Anderson

In terms of entertainment, the movie is consistently amusing, often hilarious, and energetic in its editing.

But whenever Fuck threatens to become really interesting, it's let down by its format. For while it's one thing to sit through static interviews on your TV, it's quite another to endure the same thing at the cinema.

The Financial Times

Karl French

For something rather different there’s F*ck, a moderately amusing documentary about the second most offensive word in the English language... Though not without interest, it is too parochial, too narrow in its vision, as it focuses ever more acutely on the notion of free speech in the US.

It's all reasonable but unoriginal stuff.

This could have been far more illuminating, challenging, or at the very least entertaining

The Observer

Philip French

This follow-up, a study of the etymology and use of the word "fuck", is smug, shallow, repetitive, unilluminating and rarely funny. It is also, in the way it sticks almost entirely to the United States, parochial and insular in a current American fashion.

Time Out

David Jenkins

This is a film born in the furthest reaches of the idea cul-de-sac that comes across like an archive of naff pub conversations, where smug liberals whinge about uptight conservatives and vice versa.
