Mike Moore again

11.13.2008

Michael Moore's next documentary will have an 'end of the empire' tone to it, insiders say. The outspoken film-maker will this time be turning his attention to the current financial crisis and the U.S. economy. However, in the current climate of hope, it is wondered how successful another Moore piece will be. Craig Minassian, a former aide to Bill Clinton, said:

"If Moore offers a prescription for how to improve things, he may indeed find an audience that at this moment is eager for change... But it's going to be hard for him. What this election shows is what's right with America, and sometimes what Michael Moore does is highlight what's wrong with America."

I saw BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE and I thought it was pretty great but I need another Michael Moore documentary like I need a pole in my ass. But still, as much as I would like to rail, there are more important things in life, such as maintaining the hotness balance on this page, so, ya know, whatever, Mike. Here is Scarlett Johansson.

Extra Tidbit: Moore is a big fan of TAXI DRIVER.

political documentaries

I like Moore, but his films aren't strict documentaries because he tries to entertain, and he sometimes manipulates the facts. If you are interested in political documentaries, watch "No End in Sight" and "Torturing Democracy." Two of the best documentaries I've ever seen.

Bowling for Columbine and The Big One are both great, however most of his other stuff (especially Roger & Me and Sicko) are anything but honest attempts at presenting the facts. If Moore really did care about enlightening people then I'd be all over this, however his films are just as deceitful and misinformative as anything the government tries to push on us.

Jesus, is it REALLY that bad to actually CARE about people and try to make the world a better place? Seems to me Michael Moore is simply trying to give a voice to those who have been trampled and forgotten by our society.

And at that, I think there were good things in "Fahrenheit 9/11," but the tone was just too blatantly political.

I think because he's good at exploring the mores of various aspects of our institutions, a financial doc could be more timely now than they have been in past. But with the change in political climate he'd need to be sensitive, particularly in not drawing too much from what went bad with the administration and their policies.

But with the change in political climate he'd need to be sensitive, particularly in not drawing too much from what went bad with the administration and their policies. While he was well-behaved during "Sicko" so much that only one or two subtle nods to Bush Jr. amid twenty years of health care mishandling was enough to suffice, much of our current financial problems occurred during said president's administration. Focus on the money men, not the people who appointed them.

That's all I gotta say.

Honestly "Fahrenheit 9/11" was Moore`s only real misstep. It was way too heavy-handed and actually rather dull.

"Bowling For Columbine" was excellent, "Sicko" was pretty good and took jabs at both parties, and his earlier stuff was actually pretty fun and lighthearted.

Thank God he dropped the F9/11 sequel idea.

I think Moore is not welcome in the current social climate unless, like mentioned in this column, he actually has ideas of how to improve the economy/war/whatever he's angry about.

he should be happy though, with Obama going to office. Sure its probably not favorable to his style of filmmaking i'm sure he'll get over it.

Useless slander.

...actually, I meant Craig Minassian's comments. And the tone of this article in general, actually. Good to hear Michael Moore has another likely great film in the works.
