Quotes

Dave Marsh: If you won't tell the truth because it's bad for the cause then the cause becomes a fiction, which is exactly what's happened. It's happened with the Left in the United States as a whole and it's happened with Michael Moore.

Interesting points
17 November 2007 | by fariskaSee all my reviews

This film makes some really interesting points about Michael Moore Films.

Is very interesting to know about him before his film maker career and his first movie. As well as is very curious to see how the troupe actually uses against him his very own reporting methodologies.

But said that, this movie doesn't really de-manufacture the points that Moore made on "Bowling for columbine" and Fahrenheit 9/11. Not any single key fact of those movies has been revealed as fictional or erroneous or too edited apart what I personal consider as details (like the Bush speech on Fahrenheit 9/11 or the "Bank with rifles") on the whole narrative and argumentative structure of the movies.

At the end the movie succeeds to present Moore as an hypocrite, pointing out the mistakes and omissions on "Roger and Me" but at the same time forgets to say that the facts on his later films are not questioned.
