Where to Invade Next

Michael Moore, playing the role of an American "invader", undergoes a global tour where he experiences alternative methods to dealing with social and economic ills.

"Six years since his last film and with another US election around the corner, Moore delivers a fresh surprise that feels current yet perfectly timeless. Filming abroad without drawing attention from American media, Moore reunites his A-team, including producers Carl Deal and Tia Lessin (directors of the Oscar-nominated Trouble the Water), and brings us a funny and provocative work that's guaranteed to stir up conversation.

"The United States' long history of invading countries and pushing agendas has produced results that are, to say the least, mixed. What if the US could do a better job at invading? That's the premise for this film, which sends Moore on an epic journey. Americans may be known as talkers, but Moore actually listens and he's a magnet for memorable characters. Their dialogues are revelatory, poignant, and hilarious. The film builds momentum toward a culmination that resonates with hard-earned hope." (Toronto Film Festival)

This impassioned and unruly provocateur returns to further dismantle the myth of American supremacy with renewed optimism and sharpened comic instincts.

It’s jocular, never feels like a screed, and it’s refreshingly outward-looking.

Watching it made me feel like a deprived child with my nose pressed against the glass of a magical toy store in a faraway land. On one side is a happy, harmonious land of productive people. On the other is a world of misery, anxiety, war and greed.

As America crawls towards a new administration - another chance to sell hope as a cure-all - we need voices like Moore's to remind us that change takes work.

If just half the facts presented here are correct -- and that's probably too conservative -- it does pose questions about the way America is heading. And Australia, too.

The clowning can be tiresome, yet there's finally something touching about seeing Moore stumble through phrases in Slovakian or marvel over the academic proficiency of Finnish teens.

In a brisk two hours, Moore takes us on a whistle-stop tour of policies around the world that appear to work a lot better than what America (and, increasingly, New Zealand) is doing.

Beyond the thicket of sentiment, cherry-picking, and statistic-mongering, much of the information Moore presents is engrossing and even worthwhile.

Funny and always on-topic without going overboard, it's an engaging film that could broaden Moore's fan base.
