Where to Invade Next

Directed by Michael Moore
United States, 2015
Documentary, War

Synopsis

Where are we, as Americans? Where are we going as a country? And is it where we want to go, or where we think we have to go? In his new film, Moore shifts his focus to the current state of the nation from a very different perspective: that is, from the outside looking in.

What we end up with is lesser Moore, sucked dry of the verve that made Roger and Meand Bowling for Columbine vital pieces of American filmmaking… As time has passed and Moore’s fame has grown, the effectiveness of his “bumbling idiot” onscreen persona has deteriorated significantly. Where to Invade Next may have germinated out of necessity, with Europe as one of the last frontiers to play dumb in front of unsuspecting participants who don’t quite know what to make of the idiot American abroad.

When Michael Moore’s new documentary is titled Where To Invade Next, you can be sure to expect another exposé on America’s failed and destructive foreign policy. But his hilarious follow-up to Capitalism: A Love Story instead approvingly dishes out some social policies he’d like the U.S. to emulate… While Where To Invade Next might not be as intricate or as courageous as his cogent tour de force Fahrenheit 9/11, it is just as satisfying.

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.
