"Manufacturing Dissent" [Jamie]

Last month at the Jerusalem Film Festival, I caught the anti-Michael Moore documentary "Manufacturing Dissent" (I also caught the sweetly nostalgic "Rocket Science," which you really ought to see, especially if you were a high school debater). The film was produced by two Canadian, self-described liberals, who began as fans of Moore's movies but in the process of investigating his claims, came to see that he is a self-aggrandizing fraud. The movie is not a right-wing hit job by any means, but a meticulous, carefully constructed case that demolishes not just crucial arguments Moore makes, but also the cynicism behind some of his artistic decisions.
