Roger and Me

Dir: Michael Moore

[18] Moore's excellent TV Nation show proved conclusively that at least one American understands irony. This is in similar vein, with him trying to talk to the president of General Motors, who destroyed Moore's home town of Flint, Michigan by closing the factories. A step away from normal documentary, like Nick (Aileen Wuornos) Broomfield, the film-maker is part of the movie, it's as much a documentary about making documentaries, and is a style I like greatly. Swinging from farce to tragedy, but always under control, it leaves an acrid taste in the mouth. If I was Roger Smith, I'd find it very difficult to sleep at night.
