Overview

With his latest film "Capitalism: A Love Story," Michael Moore proved once again that he is the leading creative voice for the new Left in America. Titles such as "Roger & Me," "Bowling for Columbine," "Fahrenheit 9/11" and "Sicko" are associated with an artist who has dedicated his professional life to expose the foibles of an America that believes itself virtuous and free, but which can only breathe on anger, mistrust and paranoia. "American Dissident: The Political Art of Michael Moore" is an engaging and thought-provoking look at the work of America's most controversial civil libertarian. Through a personal reading and passionate defense of Moore's project, it offers for the first time a detailed analysis of his feature films and television series, "TV Nation" and "The Awful Truth." - Francois Primeau is a professor of cinema and an independent filmmaker in Canada.
