The filmmaker’s new documentary takes aim at the ludicrous president
A good bit of advice is: don’t piss off Michael Moore. Don’t get him angry, because you wouldn’t like him when he’s angry. He turns into a big green monster and starts smashing the place up. This is all metaphorical, of course - if he was doing it literally he’d be The Hulk, silly!
He smashes the place up with documentaries, mate. It’s all through the power of his mind. And maybe his legs for walking and voice for speaking and hands for shaking hands and stuff, but mainly his mind.
Anyway, one person that has pissed Michael Moore off is Donald Trump, and so Big Mike’s gone and made a whole film about him and called it Fahrenheit 11/9, named after the date of his inauguration, no less.
Anyway, here’s the first trailer - look at Michael, all angry!
In the first-look footage, we see Moore speaking to David Hogg, the student activist who survived the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, as well as Democratic Congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Also, an angry man in a cafe.
Moore began filming the documentary back in 2017 and has been talking it up ever since, but he’s really kicking it into gear as its release is just around the corner - it hits cinemas on September 21, after making its premiere at Toronto International Film Festival.
Here he is talking about it on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert:
