New Michael Moore film goes where we want to go.

New Michael Moore film goes where we want to go.

Michael Moore has released his newest documentary entitled “Where to Invade Next.”


To learn what the USA can learn from other nations, Michael Moore playfully “invades” them to see what they have to offer.

Mr. Moore is not my favorite filmmaker by far. He is abrasive with his subjects, he’s annoying and just plain rude. However, “Where to Invade Next” is a different film than we’ve come to expect from Moore.

“Where to Invade Next” shows Michael Moore traveling the world, finding countries that have extraordinary benefits for their citizens. He then interviews people and officials who are in that country and, of course, declares that system as ours.

It’s amazing what other countries give their citizens. Italy gives paid vacation, health care and many other benefits. Moore claimed these benefits as our own.

Michael Moore visits several places especially the in Scandinavia, that have such different ways of living, but most interesting is how they handle their criminals.

This is the most amazing part of the film to me. The prisons in some of the counties such as Norway and Sweden are something I’ve never seen nor heard of. In one prison where they hold men that are murderers they have nice rooms, full size kitchens along with all the cutlery. Knives, big knives so they can cook. There is a lake they can swim in, but they can’t go all the way across. Are these prisons full of people? NO! They are almost empty. The men that are there are not being punished per se, they are being shown a way to live that is better than they were living. No death penalty, no overcrowding. It amazed me and impressed me and I long to live in such a civilized place.

I really think it’s too late for this country to ever become a country such as the ones mentioned above. But, it would be lovely.

There was a man that Michael interviewed who lost his son in The 2011 Norway attacks were two sequential lone wolf terrorist attacks by Anders Behring Breivik. (Wiki) These people don’t know the horror that has become the way of the world. The man was so sad and just didn’t understand how this could happen.

Moore claimed some wonderful benefits for this country. Unfortunately, it was just in a documentary and not real life.

Terra’s Opinion

Good job from Michael Moore. I enjoy this documentary from an entertainment point of view. I also learned a lot about other countries treatment of their citizens. I recommend this to people who want to educate themselves about the world beyond our own shores.

Always interested in a good indie film, my taste run towards Horror and documentaries. Rom-coms are my least favorite genre, but I will always take a look for the better good of the site. I've reviewed films for seven years and want to do it for about 20 more...we will see.
