Voted Best Documentary of the year by The National Board of Review, The National Society of Film Critics, The New York Film Critics Circle, and the Los Angeles Film Critics Circle, this is a highly personal, wryly humorous look at the closing of several General Motors plants in Flint, Michigan, the hometown of filmmaker Michael Moore (Emmy-nominee for "TV Nation"), which resulted in the elimination of 35,000 jobs. Armed with a razor-sharp wit, compassion and more than a little chutzpah, Moore offers his perceptions of what went wrong in Flint, and chronicles his much-thwarted efforts to meet face-to-face with the big man himself, GM chairman Roger Smith. Michael Moore's controversial but popular film has been included in numerous 10-Best Lists for 1989. The New York Times describes it as "rollicking... witty... leaving the audience roaring with laughter!"
