  • In the past, Michael Moore films like FAHRENHEIT 9/11 and SICKO have grossed millions, but for his 2008 documentary, Moore made the radical move of offering his film online for free. SLACKER UPRISING chronicles Moore's controversial efforts to bring out young voters, whom he affectionately calls "slackers," on a 2004 tour through the battleground states. Though his first audience in his native state of Michigan numbered in the hundreds, soon the events were gathering up to 16,000 people.

    SLACKER UPRISING has a different feel than Moore's previous efforts. It's a little less polished, but there's no less enthusiasm for the subject on Moore's part. Even more than in his earlier films such as BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE, the director is clearly the star here. This documentary feels like a hybrid of a political film and a rockumentary, with celebrities as varied as Eddie Vedder, Viggo Mortensen, and Roseanne Barr all making appearances to show their support for the cause. However, it's Moore who spends the most time on the stage, passionately pleading his anti-Bush case. George W. Bush comes across as just as much of a villain as he did in FAHRENHEIT 9/11, but the goal here isn't to oust Bush. Instead, the film's initial release was timed to come six weeks before the 2008 presidential election, and SLACKER UPRISING serves as a reminder of just how close the 2004 election was.
