Moore Is Less

Page 3 of 3

The only minutes I enjoyed unequivocally came with the appearance of the legendary Chicago interviewer Studs Terkel. The true print and broadcast bard of the American worker, Terkel lifts the movie to a higher plane. During a show with Moore, he plays a song from a 60-year-old Flint sit-down strike and gets his guest to talk about an uncle who participated in it. Terkel turns the caricature Michael Moore into a thoughtful human being. That's the opposite of what Moore does to his subjects -- and himself.
