      Audience Member The movie seems to spend a lot of time praising a manipulative, narcissist, racist with tendencies to abuse women. Amazingly sad how someone so cruel could remain on top for so long. I guess it's just how money is perceived here. The rating is due to the way the "documentary" was put together. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review dave d This documentary on Roger Ailes is a fair and balanced look at a man who was a media genius, and also deeply deeply flawed. For a man who is dead and who did so much harm to women, it's amazing that people still appear afraid of talking poorly about him. Instead, documentarian Alexis Bloom takes the facts and lets them sit out for all to see. Final Score: 8.3/10 Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Media mogul and monster Roger Ailes goes under the microscope and the sight is scary. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Great movie that shows the true color of Fox News and its slimeball creator Roger Ailes. Hopefully he is burning in his own room of torment in hell. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/19 Full Review Audience Member A fascinating film that exposes how such a powerful man shaped the world we know today. A must see for anyone who is interested in why our current political spectrum is so polarised. This film does not demonise Roger Ailes, like other reviews have stated. Watch it and make up your own mind. Remember the Fox slogan - Fair & Balanced! The average age of a Fox news viewer is 65 years of age. What does that tell you? Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Divide and Conquer: The Story of Roger Ailes may be straightforward and a bit lacking in stylistic direction, but it's a rather necessary look at one man's life to help understand today's politics.

      J. R. Jones Chicago Reader Director Alexis Bloom reaches back far enough into Ailes's unhappy youth in small-town Ohio to explain both his deep understanding of the heartland and his ruthless abuse of those in his professional orbit. Mar 11, 2020 Full Review Peter Travers Rolling Stone A shocking, well-researched and richly observant documentary from Alexis Bloom about the climate of lies and systemic sexual abuse that allowed the bad behavior of Fox News chief Roger Ailes to flourish until his victims said Time's Up. Rated: 4/5 Dec 13, 2018 Full Review Alissa Wilkinson Vox Divide and Conquer is not content to skim the surface of Ailes's life. Dec 8, 2018 Full Review Steven Prokopy Third Coast Review Part cautionary tale, part Citizen Kane-style biography, the film is the perfect telling of how power corrupts the soul and warps the mind to the point where it becomes cliche. Rated: 3/4 Jul 14, 2020 Full Review Phil Guie Film-Forward.com As delivered by actor Peter Gerety, who makes Ailes sound cold and downright reptilian at times, the quotes betray a deep-rooted cynicism that his actions reflected. Rated: 4/5 Mar 25, 2019 Full Review Peter Sobczynski eFilmCritic.com A smart, incisive and sometimes scary look at how we got to this particular place in our history.
