Michael Moore's Latest Movie

"Who To Invade Next"

Has antbody seen it yet? Is it worth seeing? Could it be that in this time of protest against the establshment Michael's agenda is going to be widely accepted? In the past he's made a hit in Canada and elsewhere but he didn't quite push the buttons of people in the US. The leftist establishement just hasn't been ready for the antiwar agenda. Now, amongst Sanders and maybe Trump supporters, there is a whisper of hope. Could they come over to support a good job on antiwar entertainment even though they are completely enthralled with their guns, their camo gear, and their WMD's. And of course their hate for Muslim that has been built up out of fear?

Moore is the most successful documentary film maker in US history. I think he has been very successful and he one of the reasons that Sanders is getting the response he is. Like Sanders his films have met with open opposition form the ruling elite but despite that he got his message out. Fahrenheit 9/11 was seen by a large audience and is now part of American culture.

Quote:

The film was released theatrically by The Fellowship Adventure Group through a distribution arrangement with Lions Gate Entertainment. On its opening weekend of June 25–27, 2004, the film generated box-office revenues of $23.9 million in the U.S. and Canada, making it the weekend's top-grossing film. Its opening weekend earned more than the entire U.S. theatrical run of any other feature-length documentary (including Moore's previous film, Bowling for Columbine). The film was released in the UK on July 2, 2004 and in France on July 7, 2004.

That sounds positive at least. But facts on the ground aren't quite there yet. My biggest hope is that when Trump crashes, his support will have nowhere to go but to Sanders. But are Americans really ready for an antiwar stance? ahhhhhhhhh?
