Where To Invade Next

Michael Moore

USA, 2015 / 110 min / English OV / Documentary

Die Ein-Mann-Armee der USA.

“Where to Invade Next” is an expansive, rib-tickling, and subversive comedy in which Moore, playing the role of “invader”, visits a host of nations to learn how the U.S. could improve its own prospects. Armed with a camera and a flag, the director “invades” a slew of European countries: from Norwegian prisons to female-run Icelandic banks, to Italian employee benefits, Moore travels around the world with the intention of bringing these progressive philosophies back to the States. (Hamptons International Film Festival)

“Where to Invade Next” is provocative, very funny, and impassioned—just like all of Moore’s works. But it’s also pretty surprising. (New York Film Festival)

“Undeniably sharp and buoyant… an impishly entertaining cinematic statement of ideological principles” Justin Chang,  Variety

“Impassioned. “Where to Invade Next” offers hope and is Mr. Moore’s most far-reaching film.” Stephen Holden, The New York Times

“Provocative, hilariously, funny… Moore’s latest film is his most bold and most sophisticated. Instead of pointing out our flaws, he imagines our possibilities. And instead of wallowing in fear and panic, he offers practical ideas for productive change” Sophia A. McClennen, Salon

“Moore has made an act of guerilla humanity.” Owen Gleiberman, BBC

“Heartfelt. Moore’s film is funny, but it’s also as serious as a heart attack. There’s nothing mock about his outrage, it’s sincere and ultimately hopeful.” Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly
