I must say, Michael Moore is a master of propaganda. Now, I am pretty damn liberal and agree with a lot of the stuff he says, but at the same time it is quite obviously designed to make us feel a certain way. Everyone knows what he does, so I won’t get into any of that. I will say, though, that he did good job at making us empathize with the people that have been most affected by the current economic situation, and he was able to shed some light on some of the issues that I wasn’t quite clear on. It wasn’t nearly as good as Bowling for Columbine or Sicko, and the economic crisis doesn’t really lend itself to creating a visceral reaction like the one in Fahrenheit 9/11, but it was definitely worth seeing.
Of course, since it’s Michael Moore, you will either see it and agree with it, see it and hate it vehemently, or ignore it completely–I doubt it will really spur anyone into action. But that’s the way it goes.
