This documentary is truly incredible. I was very interested in it just by observing the title. I believed that it could have given me an insightful approach to Michael Moore from a different perspective.

I always knew that Michael Moore, for the very fact that he is a man and not a robot, could not be objective. So I thought that maybe this film could have given me an introspective and a critical analysis of MM's works, pointing out bad points and imprecision's.

Evidently I was wrong.

All the people that are interviewed are talking a meaningless 'infimus'-level language, dense of curse and non-existing arguments. The people he interviews that support MM are shown as brain-less/washed zombies with opinions stuck on their head (he probably looked for the two of them in the whole crowd for hours...).

But that is not all. All the points he criticises about MM's film making, like the use of video editing omitting some parts to obtain the purpose of your argument, are widely used throughout he documentary, in a more explicit and lame way the MM ever dreamed of doing in his "Bowling for Columbine".
