Where to Invade Next ★★★½

When they write a new history of rhetoric, they'll point to Michael Moore's rabble-rousing as perhaps the finest rhetoric since Cicero. As a filmmaker, Moore instrumentalizes every single cinematic trick in the bag to make his points, forcibly or subtly. He's not above sincere poignancy as a way to make his points and this film sure traffics in that. His editing is always on point; probably only Edgar Wright understands better how editing can refine, or even structure, a joke.
