We are Way (Weigh?) More than Them

Michael Moore’s documentaries are always provocative.  They strip the magician’s curtains of corporate greed, militaristic mindset, and just plain idiocy of those in power.  I see him as a cousin to Bertolt Brecht, but just more jolly and populist.

Here, with jittery camera, unedited, he seems nearly void of the humour I expect from him. But just as provocative.

Sorry for the play on the title, Michael.  Hope you know you’ve got a fan here.
