Michael Moore once again unleashes his unique talent for making politics accessible, personal and entertaining.
Riffing on the American government’s controversial foreign policy, he puts forward a question for the next president: forget about oil for a moment – what else of serious value can the USA take from the wider world? In the course of a breezy travelogue that takes him to Italian workplaces, French schools, Norwegian prisons and more, Moore can’t help but notice that the values he grew up with – truth and justice and the American way – are alive and well, just not in America. Although he delights in mischief, his film has lessons for all: its message is that ordinary people and not politicians have the power to change the world. And it’s time they knew it.
