Rank #1: Ep 67: Where To Invade Next

Podcast cover
Read more

Believe it or not, this is the first Michael Moore documentary we’ve featured (so far) here on the Docs Factor and we wanted to find out if a film from 2015 about the USA is still relevant in 2019…. and boy is it!----more----

This is funny, emotional and discussion worthy documentary film and in our opinion, a return to early Moore form.

This not your average take on the migrant crises.

It’s emotional, poignant and at times life affirming.
