I use to have mixed feelings about Michael Moore but the sheer absence of any other political debate and his tally of good points made in his films keeps me wanting more from him. After his film about Flint I thought of it as a collection of great characters in an independent film with some unrealistic political commentary but since then there have been times when Michael Moore and Al Franken seemed to be the only political opposition in the US. The only democrat to ever raise a subject appeared to be Al Gore and good on him for that. We need more debate and to do that somebody needs to be able to stand up and speak. And that would be much easier if we had a safe environment for public speech.
Michael Moore’s latest film, “Slacker Uprising”, is available here.
