4.0 out of 5 stars Don't let the title fool you, December 13, 2004
This review is from: Michael Moore Hates America (DVD)
Let me start this by saying I *AM* a fan of Michael Moore.

That being said, I do find some of his filmmaking techniques sloppy. That is the price you pay for trying to pack big issues into a two hour movie.

Is using the title "Michael Moore Hates America" any more inflamatory than titling a book "Dude, Where's My Country?" The fact of the matter is that this is the way that this form of entertainment appeals to its core audience, from either political spectrum.

What we have here is a delightful, if somewhat provocative film by a first time filmmaker. Is it good? Ebert and Roeper gave it two thumbs up. I'd say I have to agree with their assesment.

This is an important film for anyone who wants to be informed of both sides of the issues in Mr Moore's more recent films. Knowing both sides of a discussion is the only way a person can make intellectual decisions.

See this film.

My goodness, a balanced Liberal; last of a dying breed. I think Mr. Moore is a vicious antisemite, and any reading of his books on Jews and Israel will amply bear this assertion out, but you, at least, are willing to listen to the opposite side. Good for you.
