Good point about Moore and K-Mart. He also made himself look like an a-hole when he was harassing Charlton Heston. And his whole pestering of male private part Clark was completely ridiculous. I'm a little surprised that people take him as seriously as they do.He is popular because he is outrageous, not because he conducts intelligent discourse.
I just watched Roger and Me for the first time last night (its about the closing of a GM factory in Flint, Mich and the layoffs of 30k workers). Moore does a really compelling job of presenting his side of things, very clever editing, lots of witty irony, etc. As a film I really enjoyed it. As a social commentary, I feel that he does a great job pointing out problems in society for which there are no easy solutions (same w/Bowling for Columbine). Nor does he propose a solution, except maybe a weak implication that GM should be obligated to provide for their factory workers for some period of time beyond that of their employment for the company. I think this lack of proposed solution really takes away from the effectiveness of Moore's film.
