In Michael Moore's first and most colloquial film, the economic effects of the auto industry on a small town in Michigan are explored in an interesting and very human way. Moore leaves behind the scoffing sarcasm he would later display in more controversial films and, instead, simply tells an effective story from the heart.

I rather enjoyed this movie. It's a documentary that takes a principled position on a serious issue.

Michael Moore may be biased, but at least it's entertaining biased. There is a good message here, even if Moore lacquers it with a thick coat of healthy sarcasm and snarky remarks. I have no problem with Moore, so I love every minute of it.

i really admire director, writer, producer michael moore. is there anybody who is better in making controversial protest film documentaries? as with all michael moore's work, it has a little bit of humor, a little bit of drama, and of course a lot of sarcasm.

Where Moore Started

Watching this documentary is like reading an extremely well-written essay. It starts off with a general but brief history of Flint, Michigan but it quickly got to the point: the effects of the layoffs of more than 30,000 people due to Roger Smith’s (and those of power) decision to shut down a General Motors (GM) factory there. One of the reasons why I love Michael Moore’s films is that they are able to give audiences various emotions despite Moore’s questionable techniques. This one is definitey one of the angriest and saddest documentaries I’ve seen but it also has its moments of genuine (if not bittersweet) laughs. Moore is able to present a problem in a clear-cut way, provide several reasons on why a particular issue is a problem, and what the citizens of Flint have done to resolve it ...
