‘Where to Invade Next’

where-to-invade-next-posterThe usual bombast from filmmaker Michael Moore (Bowling for Columbine, Fahrenheit 9/11) results in yet another generally enthralling documentary.

This is not an expose of American strategic military plans. Instead, Moore invades (mostly) European countries to colonise the best of social welfare programmes and civil rights to take back to the US.

He may have mellowed over the years and the planting of the Stars and Stripes after each ‘policy’ errs on the side of patronising, but in discussing Portugal’s successful war on drugs or the democratic fight for the rights of women in Tunisia, Moore has created another thought-provoking and engaging documentary.
