Michael Moore has made a career by turning his camera on prominent people and asking them discomfiting questions about hot-button political issues in which they're involved. He's made them squirm and look foolish, extracting some striking answers along the way. Now the tables have turned, and Moore has become the subject of a film that questions his tactics and approach to political film-making. This documentary, made by two Canadians, Debbie Melnyk and Rick Caine, former fans of the politically charged Moore, takes a critical look at his techniques, from his editing process to his use of "out of context" information. They offer a different side of the man who has been hailed by the left as a pivotal force in swaying the public's opinions about the key issues of the day.
