Storyline

Oscar-winner Michael Moore dives deep in the heart of hostile TrumpLand territory with his daring, profound, and uproarious one-man show. When the show gets banned from the first town they tried, Mike moves on to an even bigger community of Trump supporters in the ironically-named Clinton County, Ohio. Performed, shot, and edited just weeks before the 2016 election, this heartfelt, honest, and hilarious concert film is essential election viewing for a divided America. With a title like Michael Moore in TrumpLand, you may think you know what's in store, but the film is sure to surprise. Entertaining, outraging, and informing in equal measure, no matter who you're voting for, this movie has something for everybody.

Quotes

Michael Moore: [about Millennials] You are not haters. This is a generation of none haters. Have you notice that? The majority of 18 to 35 year olds, they don't hate people because of their skin colour or because they're in love with someone of the same gender

Michael Moore: They didn't create climate change, they didn't send the troops to Iraq, Millennials didn't cause the Wall Street collapse. Why is it on them to fix our shitty situation that we handed them?

Moore at his kindest and gentlest
20 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

This is Michael Moore at his very best—very thoughtful and penetrating, and hardworkingly committed to fostering understanding of some of our fundamental political challenges.

I felt he did an excellent job of presenting the view that Trump's rise on the national political scene is a warranted but ultimately very destructive reaction to the neglect and abandonment of countless Americans by our economic and social order.

"Michael Moore in TrumpLand" is full of genuine humanity and surprisingly gentle humor.

I'm doubtful Moore's efforts in making this film stand much chance of having an impact on the electoral outcome, but I still think it's great that he has given us an offering of such quality.

I must say on an anecdotal note that upon being re-exposed to typical TV coverage of the election after having left a screening of this movie, I felt as though I'd gone from a sane place to a place of true barbarity. (I was really, truly surprised to find how super-barbaric what has grown all-too-familiar of late suddenly seemed.)
