Film-maker. Best-selling author. Polemicist. Agitator. Activist. Michael Moore has made some of the most successful documentaries of all time. A baseball-capped blue-collar everyman from Flint, Michigan, Moore has a genius for pointing out the absurdity, hypocrisy and injustice in modern America. One by one he has targeted and exposed some of the biggest and most powerful institutions in the USA today, including corporate America (Roger & Me), gun control (Bowling for Columbine) and the US healthcare system (Sicko). With his in-your-face approach, humour, jocular screen presence, brilliant use of archive footage, and gift for attention-grabbing stunts, Moore goes straight for the jugular of his chosen subjects. The results are at once eye-opening, shocking, persuasive and very very funny. This collection brings together Moore’s three most acclaimed feature documentaries. Sicko is a piercing investigation into the profit-hungry US healthcare system that is alarming and side-splitting in equal measure. Bowling for Columbine is a heart-wrenching yet hilarious take on the US gun culture which famously won Moore the Oscar® for Best Documentary. The most successful documentary ever made and winner of the 2004 Palme D’Or at Cannes, Farenheit 911 is a geo-political rollercoaster ride about George W. Bush’s election and the events around the 2001 World Trade Centre attacks. Each one is essential viewing.
