I remember watching Roger & Me in a theater, when it first came out. I'd never seen anything like it! All the documentaries I knew at the time seemed pretty boring, you know, like school documentaries and that kind of stuff.

When you look at what's happened to GM, it kinda makes you want to say "He told us so!"

I'll put in a vote for ROGER AND ME. A very funny, and prophetic, documentary; highly recommended.

I do like Sicko too. I'd bet that the library where I work has Capitalism, so I better check it out.

ValentineXavier,
I totally recommend Capitalism if you enjoyed Fahrenheit 9/11 - it's hard to think which one is "better" for Moore fans. I think I enjoyed both equally, but in some ways Sicko hits closer to home because almost everyone knows someone who's undergone some horrible deal with an HMO or other health provider.

Me too. I think *Fahrenheit 911* is my favorite, but I haven't seen "Capitalism" yet.

Sicko is my favorite, but darn I must have misplaced it.

Just watched his latest documentary Capitalism: A Love Story recently, he's still making some pretty good stuff, a little bit of that goes a long way.

Anyone here a fan of Michael Moore? What are your favorite Moore documentaries?
