If this exellent movie in the tradition of the great american ‘muck rakers’ such as Izzy Stone, Upton Sinclair and George Selges whose ability to publish what was already almost always on the public record was a testimony to to democracy and free speech in the USA. Michael Moore’s movie is a diatribe leavened with some excellent homely humor like putting police ‘crime scene’ tape around a bank building.
I had not heard the story about the two judges who were bribed to sentence youngsters to incarceration in a privately owned jail on the basis of incredibly brief hearings.To behave in such a blatantly unacceptable way says worrying thing about that community.When the two judges go on trial, the court transcripts will be fascinating to read. Perhaps the basis of another Moore movie.
In his eagerness to gain Audiences (and he does!) he follows a formula which includes a number of his own ‘stunts’ which are usually very funny. I was struck by some of the archival clips which were new to me: especially F.D. Roosevelt’s speech suggesting new constitutional rights which today would probably be described as ‘Human Rights’, how tragic to watch this magnificent dignified man knowing that a few months later he would be dead.

A jarring note for me were the short interviews with a man I recognised as an actor I’d seen in B-movies years ago. It should have been made clear that he was an actor and what his role in was. I thought the churchmen who appeared covered themselves with glory: I was deeply moved by them, both as people and men of the cloth.
