'Where to Invade Next' Review: Another Michael Moore Triumph

9 November 2015 1:29 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In a career that has spanned 26 years, documentary filmmaker Michael Moore has explored the automotive industry (Roger & Me), America's gun culture (Bowling for Columbine, which he won an Oscar for), the 9/11 tragedy (Fahrenheit 9/11), the health care industry (SiCKO) and corporate greed (Capitalism: A Love Story). The filmmaker returns with his first film in six years, the fascinating Where to Invade Next, which was one of the Gala Screenings at AFI Fest in Hollywood last night. The director himself was present to introduce the film at AFI Fest and for a post-screening Q&A, where he admitted that his own films and other documentaries merely present many problems that society faces, while offering no solutions. Where to Invade Next takes a different approach, presenting "no problems, all solutions" to issues faced by the American public, in what may be his best documentary since Bowling for Columbine.

Michael Moore on Why Films Should Be Seen in Theaters and We Need More Women Filmmakers

25 October 2015 1:45 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

At the Produced By: New York conference this weekend in New York, Academy Award-winning documentarian Michael Moore took the stage to discuss filmmaking, the social impact of his own films and his new documentary "Where to Invade Next," which will be released on December 23 (see teaser above). Led by Columbia University film professor Annette Insdorf, the conversation remained light, but Moore wasn't afraid to dig into important cultural issues as well as his own traumatic experiences being assaulted by people who who disagreed with his beliefs. Toronto Review: Michael Moore's Changes His Tune With 'Where to Invade Next' Of course, Moore's films have tackled important and often difficult political and social issues America faces, from gun control ("Bowling for Columbine") to healthcare ("Sicko") to big banking ("Capitalism: A Love Story"). Moore said he is aware of the influence his films have had on viewers, but is nonetheless pushing. »

Michael Moore’s ‘Where to Invade Next’ Goes to New Distribution Label

30 September 2015 11:19 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Michael Moore has chosen a new distributor for his documentary “Where to Invade Next,” three weeks after the film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival.

Former Radius Founders and Co-Presidents Tom Quinn and Jason Janego are teaming with Alamo Drafthouse Founder and CEO Tim League to form the yet-to-be-named distribution label.

“Together with Michael Moore and his extraordinary new film we hope to remind Americans they have the inalienable right to laugh, especially in an election year,” Quinn, Janego and League said. “We’re thrilled about our new label and can’t think of a better film or filmmaker to launch with.”  

The company name and details of the new venture will be revealed at a later date.

“Where to Invade Next” was expected to be one of the hot projects of this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, but a sale took longer than anticipated, closing two weeks after the fest ended. »

Daily | Toronto 2015 | Michael Moore’s Where To Invade Next

11 September 2015 1:08 PM, PDT | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

"Not the evisceration of Us foreign policy you might expect," writes the Guardian's Henry Barnes, reviewing Michael Moore's Where to Invade Next, his first documentary feature since Capitalism: A Love Story (2009). Variety's Justin Chang suggests that "next to the relatively focused approach of films like Roger & Me, Bowling for Columbine, Fahrenheit 9/11 and Sicko, Where to Invade Next has a broader topical scope that gives it the feel of a career summation, a cinematic statement of ideological principles." We've got more reviews and the trailer. » - David Hudson »

Trailer: Michael Moore's "Where To Invade Next"

11 September 2015 6:50 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

After six years away, filmmaker Michael Moore unveiled his latest documentary "Where To Invade Next" at the Toronto Film Festival last night to rave reviews saying it is his best since his glory days of "Bowling for Columbine" and "Sicko".

The film reportedly has a surprisingly optimistic outlook as it explores social programs and policies in other countries and contrasts the U.S. approach with those. It is said to be more cheekily humorous and less lecturing in style than his previous efforts.

Buyers reportedly are competing for the project and not just specialist studio distributors but streaming giant Netflix as well due to worldwide rights for the film still being available.

Toronto Film Review: ‘Where to Invade Next’

11 September 2015 12:56 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

All has been fairly quiet on the pestering front for Michael Moore since “Capitalism: A Love Story,” his glum 2009 assessment of the greed-is-good culture that spawned the global financial crisis. But now this impassioned and unruly provocateur returns to further dismantle the myth of American supremacy with renewed optimism and sharpened comic instincts in “Where to Invade Next,” an impishly entertaining, career-summarizing polemic bent on demonstrating how other countries around the world — with their happy workers, superior schools, humane prisons, healthy sexual attitudes and fully empowered women — are putting U.S. progress to shame. This may be drive-by tourism on a highly selective, flattering and downright gluttonous scale, but there’s something undeniably sharp and buoyant about Moore’s globe-trotting, grass-is-greener approach that compels indulgence and attention. It may not win over his detractors, who are and remain legion, but with careful election-season targeting by a shrewd distributor, he might »

Toronto Review: Has Michael Moore Gone Soft? With 'Where to Invade Next,' He Changes His Tune

10 September 2015 11:56 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: The 2015 Indiewire Toronto Bible "I've turned into this crazy optimist," confesses Michael Moore in  "Where to Invade Next." It's a radical statement from America's best-known cinematic polemicist in his least radical movie. Having assailed American corporations, sitting presidents and bureaucrats for decades, Moore shifts direction for a freewheeling essay on how to improve American society. Five years after his rambling "Capitalism: A Love Story," the filmmaker bounces back from one of his worst films with one of his best — a surprisingly endearing set of suggestions for a better tomorrow. Among Moore's various outings, "Where to Invade Next" bears the closest resemblance to 2007 health care exposé "Sicko," which found the portly documentarian wandering around Europe showcasing alternatives to the American way of doing things. "Where to Invade Next" takes the form of another travelogue steeped in »
