Michael Moore in TrumpLand filmed in secret and given last-minute release

10.18.2016

Whoa, so Michael Moore has apparently just made an entire film in secret. Now he's scrambling to finish the editing and mixing to premiere it tonight at the New York IFC Center, and reportedly has just hired a publicist today to book press screenings this weekend in venues around Los Angeles and New York. I mean, I've done some things last minute, but this seems f*cking ridiculous.

Anyway, the film in question is MICHAEL MOORE IN TRUMPLAND, and is described as "the film Ohio Republicans tried to shut down. Oscar-winner Michael Moore dives right into hostile territory with his daring and hilarious one-man show, deep in the heart of TrumpLand in the weeks before the 2016 election.

I know this might be controversial to say, but I'm a huge fan of Michael Moore. I appreciate that he seems to genuinely care about the issues he's talking about, and his films are both informational and hilarious in equal measure. While - like almost all documentaries - he sometimes uses editing to his advantage, and has used some facts manipulatively, I'd argue it's always utilized simply for embellishment (or comedy) and never to the point where the main conceit of his arguments are debunked. So I'm looking forward to see him take on the ridiculous Trump campaign and his followers. 

I can already hear the angry typing from the comments section from a mile away, and I haven't even published this yet. Sigh.

Either way, MICHAEL MOORE IN TRUMPLAND will, again, premiere tonight October 18th, 2016 at the New York IFC Center, then hopefully subsequent press screenings in Los Angeles and New York this weekend October 21st-23rd. It will then be released on VOD and iTunes soon after

So what are your thoughts on Michael Moore? I'm just kidding, you're going to tell me anyway.. 

Extra Tidbit: Michael Moore got in hot water with SOUTH PARK creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone when he interviewed Stone for his film BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE and followed it up with an animated anti-gun segment in their style. Gun owners Stone and Parker were unamused, and subsequently made fun of and killed Moore off in TEAM AMERICA.

I don't think it's so much that he made the film in secret, it's more that nobody gives a shit about Michael Moore. His best work was in "Team America: World Police"

What a waste. When there's so much factual incriminating evidence surrounding HRC that would make a killer doco and evidence that should be more in the public consciousness he goes wastes his and everyone else's time trying to no doubt slander Trump.

So both Ava Duvernay and Michael Moore try to take out Trump the same week?

They will fail like the other mere mortals who have tried. It's more impressive than Moore filmed this in secret than anything else. from the sound of it, it sounds like its just a bunch of clips of Trump supporters saying dumb things. i'm sure it was not difficult for Moore to get a camera crew and film some election stuff.

Also, might I ask, If this film was made entirely in secret than how could Ohio Republicans have tried to shut it down? Lastly does anyone else find it amusing that

I'm sorry but - no

Michael Moore plays very loose with facts, ambushes subjects, takes their statements out of context, and does not make documentaries. He makes opinion pieces. I respect your right to like him but I have never cared for him.

He does do a funny Trump impression.

Filmed in secret? Because they usually get tons of attention, right? Sorry, I'm not a Trump fan, but come on. Who cares about Michael Moore stuff that isn't already voting for Hillary.

There's definitely some of Moore's stuff that needs to be taken with a big grain of salt...

But, you call those who follow his films "sheep"... and you're on the Trump Train? Kettle... meet pot...

I don't know, we all view tings through our own bias and I'm certainly no exception, but it seems like supporting the guy that the entire media, entertainment community, and about half the internet has tried to portray as the anti-Christ is a a bit less of an instance of following the herd.

I like Michael Moore a lot.

And I would love for this to came out as VOD soon.

Damion, how many pieces about Michael Moore have you written for this site? Is there any previous experience you had with talkbackers? Please man, everyone is entitled to their opinion, that's what's beautiful about democracy. Don't take it out on the talkbackers, and allow them to express themselves. Michael Moore wouldn't want you too silence anyone, you know?

Michael Moore is totally for silence from those that don't agree with a Bernie Sanders style 'progressive' agenda. I've seen the guys work, I'll pass, but he has every right to his opinion.
