Michael Moore looks to continue to make an imprint on American politics. The 62-year-old filmmaker, known for 2002’s “Bowling for Columbine” and later work, has been tweeting lately using #OctoberSurprise as a hashtag (see far below). The surprise that is referenced is the imminent New York debut of his newest work on Tuesday night called “Michael Moore in Trumpland.”
Moore’s progressive politics hint at film’s content
Michael Moore hasn’t exactly been a supporter of right-wing and/or Republican political stances. For instance, Moore’s 2007 film “Sicko” offered comparisons and contrasts between America’s health-care system and that of other countries, such as Canada’s and France’s. The main point of the film was that the not-for-profit socialized health-care systems found in countries like Canada and France were superior to the USA’s profit-oriented health-care system.
Moore was also a staunch critic of the Republican Party’s last president, George W. Bush. The criticism was most prominently featured in Moore’s “Fahrenheit 9-11,” an incredibly successful documentary from 2004, where Bush was depicted as a fraudulent president and even a warmonger.
