Image of 
									Michael MooreMichael Moore
With his controversial and probing documentaries like Fahrenheit 9/11 and Bowling for Columbine, and books like Dude, Where’s My Country?, Michael Moore insistently pokes at the powerful in corporate and political America. His dress sloppy, his beard scraggly and a baseball cap almost permanently affixed to his head, Moore has set himself up as an Average Joe with a camera, an ax to grind and a hope to force change in the country.

Stupid White Men ...and Other Sorry Excuses for the State of the Nation!
by Michael Moore
Moore's mission is to ruffle as many feathers as possible, and with his latest manifesto, Stupid White Men, he's done an admirable job. Moore, known as both a filmmaker and a bestselling author, takes on our current and former presidents, corporate America, and the judicial system in this irreverently witty, no-holds-barred look at the state of the nation.

Moore's Movie with a Mission

Moore made headlines and broke box office records with his latest documentary, Fahrenheit 9/11, in which he relentlessly probes the current administration's handling of the September 11th terrorist attacks on the Pentagon and World Trade Center. As he accepted the the Palme d'Or -- the Cannes Film Festival's top honors -- Moore commented, "I did not set out to make a political film. I want people to leave thinking that was a good way to spend two hours. The art of this, the cinema, comes before the politics."
