Michael Moore’s Donald Trump Movie Is the “Film to See Before It’s Too Late”

I’m a big Michael Moore fan, controlled opposition or not.

n the fall of 2016, Michael Moore was one of the few liberal cultural figures who predicted that Donald Trump would win the presidential election. Now the documentary filmmaker says his next project, Fahrenheit 11/9, a Trump-focused movie that takes its title from the president’s fateful election day, will arrive in theaters in time for the midterms.

The Jarvis family, a group of eight, goes on the run from the law—for seven years. They live on a boat, in a treehouse in a swamp. They escape capture time after time. And how do the kids turn out, living a life outside of society, as fugitives? Surprisingly great.
