Where To Invade Next (2015)

where-to-invade-next-poster “I am an American. I live in a great country, that was born in genocide and built on the backs of slaves. ” – Michael Moore

Number of Times Seen – 1 (12 Jul 2016)

Brief Synopsis – Film maker Michael Moore travels to numerous countries around the world to try and find lifestyle and legal ideas to adopt in the US.

Take on it – For me Michael Moore’s films have been either hit or miss because he has great ideas but sometimes takes them to extremes because of his own politics instead of finding a moderate stance in the middle.

This film is actually a very clever idea and I liked the way that he went about gathering his information.

Yes, his title suggests that his intentions may be cynical, but the ideas are mostly quite good and are great food for thought to open people’s minds up to new and innovative ideas.

Ultimately though, his point is valid and it probably would behoove policy makers to seriously consider some of his ideas after exploring them further especially when dealing with the education and labor issues.

Bottom Line – Great idea for a film because it helps open up people’s minds to different cultural phenomena in other countries.  Some of the ideas make sense and some less so but ultimately Moore’s point is that the US must make some policy changes in a number of different fields including in education and in the workplace. Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – According to Michael Moore, not a single frame of his documentary is shot on location in the USA.  (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy
