    I just got back from seeing " Where to Invade Next" a comical,satirical, ram rod straight indictment of American life, culture,and politics. Whatever side of the aisle you are on you will be angry....he will challenge your views on who we are as a people, and at the same time see how the government has gotten away from us. I saw it at an 'art house theatre' so it unfortunately won t be at the mall where it needs to be. Probably won t do any bidness.

    He's an AMAZING director.

    Having said that, I hate him. His political documentaries are always based on lies when I research them! I'll download it later

    I've found this problematic too. It's so well put and produced it feels real, hen it tends to fall down sometimes.

    Moore is one of those people who's just sad and disgusted with himself, and projects that in his dumbshit, one-sided, idiotic documentaries. Once he actually gets laid/comes out/loses a hundred or so pounds, he'll be happier and quit bothering people.

    So right. Still, I respect his talent -- and I respect the American way that's allowed him to get everything he has, even if he doesn't respect it.

    If you listen to Michael Moore, you would believe that no one in Canada locks their doors at night.

    Just like most political documentaries that try to deliver a message and clearly is one sided, Moore's version of the facts are very biased and one sided. You can't take his message on face value.

    He's one of the great directors of our time and even if his greatest haters don't know that other directors of our time - especially creators of documentaries were disciples of his at some point. But you have to point out his dishonesty.

    If you view his films as nonfiction like Disney movies I bet they'd be more entertaining

    i wouldn't call his movies documentaries in the truest sense. They are interpretations of real events he filters through his own political/ideological lens. I do enjoy watching his movies as an alternative view of a particular subject matter, but I do not accept anything he says as fact.

    Indoctrinations are most effective when directed against the young.

    He is a lot like reality TV. He edits his footage so he can tell the story he wants to tell. Anything that gets in the way of that is cut out.

    It's not journalism. Unless you consider opinion/editorial pieces journalism.
