Of course this is Moore's first movie, and although it was made on a very low budget, I thought it was just as great and touching as >Bowling for Columbine<. It was fascinating to follow Moore on his quest to get an interview with Roger, the untouchable and heroic (at least to Wall Street) CEO of General Motors, who was responsible for closing the GM plant in Flint, Michigan and 6 others across the United States (so that, for example, other factories could be opened in Mexico that would exploit the cheap labor forces). Moore not only shows us how the blue collar workers were affected by the lay-offs, but he has also managed to get the opinions of some members of the upper class of Flint. So, on the one side, you've got all these people that are getting thrown out of their homes because they don't have a job and can't pay the rent, and on the other side of town the rich are playing golf and throwing parties, condemning the unemployed for being lazy or not innovative enough. With some examples, Moore demonstrates that this kind of thinking is indeed wrong to a large extent; many people of Flint did try to find other ways of making a living, but certainly the means and possibilities available in a city that had just had the rug pulled out from under its feet are extemely limited. The film culminates with a Christmas speech wherein the speaker expresses how important it is for American citizens to be charitable and show good will to their fellow men, while yet another unemployed mother and children get kicked out of their house in Flint. An awesome documentary!!!
