If you’re American, I’m going to insist that you take a couple of hours from your busy life and see Michael Moore’s brilliantly-realised new documentary, Sicko.
And then pack your bags for France.
Can I go to Scotland instead?
(Not that I need to see anything by Michael Moore to so encourage me.)
One of the main reasons I think I’m so in favour of heading out to England is its proximity to Scotland. And on that note, regarding your earlier plans of being a stowaway, I’d suggest you start packing your bags. Or is that packing yourself in a bag?
(I haven’t seen anything by Michael Moore prior to this, but I’ve read a book of his, which was sort of OK. I got into this movie expecting nothing great from it, but it was surprisingly well-done and rather moving.)
I’ve not seen anything by Michael Moore, although my mom saw the last one of his about George Bush or 9/11, the name of it escapes me at the moment, but she really enjoyed it.
When do you leave? What have you planned for Scotland, anything in particular?
i’ve been eagerly awaiting this movie…loved both “fahrenheit 9/11” and “bowling for columbine”. i think i saw “roger & me” as well, but that was a long time ago and i don’t really remember it too well. anyway, i know some people find him annoying, but i really like him. even more so after his oscar speech.
Michelle: I intend on leaving really-late this year or really-early the next. The operative word being intend.
I have nothing in particular planned out for any place. But I am stoked by the idea of using England as a base to gallivant around Europe.
anita: I haven’t made the opportunity to see the other movies, but I probably will now that you’ve made me curious. A book of his I’d read a long time ago, I think it was called “Downsize This,” was not bad, but tended to be a little whiney at times in the social message it was trying to get across. “Sicko,” on the other hand, was absolutely brilliant!
