Controversial documentary filmmaker Michael Moore just surprised his fans with a special October treat. In an attempt to influence the 2016 presidential election, Moore released a film this week called “Michael Moore in TrumpLand.” This is not a big film where he goes to different towns and cities like you see in most of his other films. Instead, this new film is really just a stand-up comedy routine where he is on stage talking about this year’s election.
It only took Moore two nights to film the movie in Wilmington, Ohio. He was originally going to film in Newark, Ohio at the Midland Theater, but the community board in charge of that theater did not want him to perform there because of his supposed intentions to influence the election. Fortunately, he was able to find a theater in Wilmington that would let him perform his one-man routine in front of a live audience.
As you can imagine, Moore is not a supporter of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. The whole purpose of “TrumpLand” is to help get Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton as much support as possible so she can get elected president on November 8th. At the same time, he wants to criticize Trump and convince people that he wouldn’t be a good president.
You might know Moore from his controversial documentaries like “Fahrenheit 9/11,” “Sicko,” and “Bowling for Columbine,” which he won an Oscar for. While right-wing voters may not want to see “TrumpLand,” people on the left will be more than happy to watch it. Overall, this film is for the undecided voters who are still on the fence. Perhaps they will want to choose Clinton after watching Moore’s latest film.
