Cinemascope is a regular blog post where I will share with you movies and TV shows I think are worth watching.

Released in 2015.

Plot line: Filmmaker Michael Moore visits various countries to examine how Europeans view work, education, health care, sex, equality, and other issues. From cafeteria food to sex ed, Moore looks at the benefits of schooling in France, Finland and Slovenia. In Italy, he marvels at how workers enjoy reasonable hours and generous vacation time. In Portugal, Moore notes the effects of the decriminalization of drugs. Through his travels, we discover just how different America is from the rest of the world.

The thing about Michael Moore is that he is sometimes over the top, but he also shows us that the emperor really has no clothes, and I'll always love him for that. The topics covered in this documentary is something you won't see covered in the US mainstream media, and is something all Americans should be talking about.

You can see the trailer here. If you have yet to see it, this is a movie worth watching.
