Have Flag, Will Travel --- Day 4/296

Walk: Cinema Club (Where to Invade Next), Dosa, Trader Joe's
Distance: 3 miles 

Where to Invade Next

Michael Moore is back. He has grabbed his camera and an American flag and taken his choir of screen followers all over the map preaching about things other countries have right from food in French children's schools to women's rights in Iceland.  One reviewer calls this new documentary, Where to Invade Next, "an extended infomercial for socialism," another says "impishly funny" and yet another says "consciousness raising."

Ciwt guesses they are all correct.  But Ciwt is not in Moore's choir (in truth she has avoided all Moore movies until today) so it's easy for her to say the movie was also waaay too long and over simplified and Moore really, really needs to attend to his weight and health. If you are in his choir, you will probably like Where to Invade Next quite a lot.
