Storyline

This documentary takes a look on all sides of the infamous F-word. It's 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 exams how the word is impacting our world today through interviews, film and television clips, music, and original animation by Bill Plympton. Scholars and linguists examine the long history of fuck. Comedians, actors, and writers who have charted and popularized the upward course of fuck are heard from, often while defending the Constitutional Right of Free Speech, all the way to the Supreme Court. FUCK visits with those who actually fuck for a living. We hear from advocates who oppose fuck and its infringement into our everyday lives. We watch some of the most famous and infamous film and television clips that feature fuck, we hear some... Written by GD

Trivia

Team Fuck was created to monitor exactly how the press and media covered the title of the film. They found it was done in all sorts of permutations - Fuck, F*ck, F**k, F*** and even ****. The only major newspaper to use the full name uncensored was in Victoria, British Columbia. See more »

Goofs

The narration says that "fucking" in the phrase "fucking brilliant" is an adjective, but it's an adverb. See more »

Quotes

Billy Connolly: "Fuck off." It's such a lovely pair of words! And it's international. I don't care where you are - if somebody's fuckin' with your bags in Lhasa Airport in Tibet and he's got a shaven head and saffron clothes on and you say "hey, fuck off!", he knows *exactly* what you mean. Exact - he will fuck off. Off he will fuck! 'Fuck off' doesn't mean 'go away.' 'Fuck off' means 'fuck... *off.*' And everybody feels what it means, nobody can write it down. There is no English equivalent for 'fuck off,' ...

Terrific, lively documentary!
9 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to catch this tremendous documentary at the San Francisco Independent Film Festival, and OH MY GOD, was it fun! Sadly, the director told the audience the cut may need to change based on getting final clearance for a lot of the clips and interviews, but if it remains intact, and can find a brave distributor who's savvy enough to market this film, "F%ck" could have a very good theatrical life before making an even bigger splash on home video.

Extremely hilarious, refreshingly vulgar, and surprisingly political, "F%ck" not only examines the root and use of the word but the entire culturally-charged issue of swearing. I don't want to say more, but its almost impossible to watch even a few moments of this film without getting the giggles.

Terrific stuff, and as long as you're not easily offended, a MUST SEE!
