It’s all reasonably interesting, but presented in a shallow, at times even glib manner. I’d love to see Moore tackle each of these concepts in individual films — to show us how these countries got there and to confront the forces here at home preventing any real reform of our schools, our prisons, our police forces, our workplaces. But here, presented as a menu of mix-and-match progressive offerings, the ideas gradually lose their power. They become little more than smug sound-bites.
