While many people find Moore's films to be self-aggrandizing, we appreciate that the filmmaker takes risks by bringing vital issues into the public eye and opening them up for scrutiny. His unique, "insider" depictions of topics we care about typically leave us with a more in depth understanding of them. Moore does the work, comes up with potential alternative solutions, and above all, gets us thinking. Whether his perspective is subjective or not, learning more about important topics and opening up a public discourse gets us motivated to pay attention to what's going on in the world and want to make a difference.
