Our intrepid defender of the working man, Michael Moore, documents his 1996 "Downsize This!" book tour across the USA. Shot on-the-cheap with a video camera, we once again watch our hero interview the working man at yet another plant closing, while also trying to get past corporate security guards to interview the millionaire CEOs.


Interesting follow-up to Roger and Me Michael Moore's second film isalittle more accessible than theoriginal, but at least he takes onthe private sector with the samevigor he showed in the first film.Often times dragging, the bigmoment in this film is Moore'sinterview with NIKE founder PhilKnight. Not only is this part shocking,it redeems a film that lags in somespots. A solid follow-up to Moore'sfirst film and his television showTV Nation.
