Bowling For Columbine: Michael Moore - Thorn in the side of corporate America, scourge of the political hypocrisy and all-round ass-kicker of those that need a boot in the behind...
With his trademark charm and biting wit, Michael Moore's documentary sets off on a rollicking journey to the heart of America, hoping to discover why the American pursuit of happiness is so riddled with massive amounts of violence and asks "Are we a nation of gun nuts.... or are we just nuts?"

Fahrenheit 9/11: Already the highest grossing documentary of all time in America (also breaking records in Europe and the UK) and winner of the prestigious Palme D'Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 2004, Fahrenheit 9/11 is the powerful new film from Oscar-winning director Michael Moore. Following the huge critical and commercial success of Bowling For Columbine, Moore uses his characteristically deft humour and uniquely persistent style to launch an unflinching inquiry into the Bush administration's foreign policy.

Fahrenheit 9/11 is by turns determinedly truthful, scathingly funny, intensely thought-provoking and thoroughly entertaining. Combining rare footage, expert testimony and his one-of-a-kind dogged hunt for answers to tough questions, the film takes on the burning issues facing America today. Michael Moore turns a sceptical lens on President George W. Bush and his inner circle who ignored the Saudi connection to 9/11 and instead rushed headlong into war against Iraq...

Sicko: Sicko is the new documentary film by director Michael Moore.

It investigates the United States health care system with a focus on for-profit health insurance and the pharmaceutical industry. The film compares the U.S. health care system with that of Canada's single-payer system and other universal health care systems, including those in France, the United Kingdom and Cuba. The film has been criticized for not discussing the drawbacks of universal health care in these countries.

I like Moore's stuff - I recently recorded "Capitalism - A Love Story" from C4.

An excellent opportunity to see his dodgy editing skills to make Charlton Heston look like he's saying something different

I used to love Moore's work, until recently when he just came across a bit of a prat. This is a good read:
Anti-Moore book

I also felt very uncomfortable with a section where he falls just short of gloating that an opponent of his cashed an anonymous cheque he wrote as part of an appeal to pay for his wife's cancer treatment.

Still, a good price so heat from me

He makes some good points but he's doesn't always give both sides of the story, like in sicko when he's comparing the pay for American health system to the UK's free nhs, he praises the latter yet makes no mention of the long waiting times etc.

I very much agree that this is a largely one-sided view of things, but as long as you realize that then it's still very much worth watching because it does rightfully point out several things that are wrong with "the system". Also, I think that if I had a severe illness, I would rather wait for a few weeks, months or even years instead of not receiving any treatment at all because I've had acne when I was 13.

I disagree with atleast as much of what he says I agree with, but he makes me think - you know he's one sided, but thats fine by me - seeing one-sided documentaries can make you think atleast as much as balanced ones, if only by making you check out his facts and opinions afterwoods.

Apart from Panorama documentaries. They are just one-sided and generally uninteresting. Such as the recent world cup one, which based its entire "investigation" on an apparently incriminating spreadsheet that anybody could knock up themselves on excel.
