Synopsis

Documentary In the aftermath of the 1999 massacre at Columbine High and of September 11th, investigative journalist Michael Moore asks why the USA is so prone to violent killings. Travelling through the nation, Moore leads us through his provocative arguments in a scary yet entertaining and frequently hilarious way. Moore is the irrepressible scourge of 'Stupid White Americans' (the title of his publication, the most widely-read non-fiction book in the US), and of corporate power (in his TV series, 'TV Nation'.) He argues that it's all down to the American Ethic, and presents his film as a warning to the UK not to go down this route.
