Movie Summary

Director:
Michael Moore
Released:
1998
Rating:
PG-13
The Big One is a loud 1998 film directed by opinionated documentary tycoon Michael Moore (Bowling for Columbine, Sicko, Fahrenheit 9/11). The film was produced in an effort to introduce the generally blind and fearful public of the alarming realities of unemployment and its prevalence in the United States. Moore very characteristically chases CEO's and department heads, imploring them to elaborate on the paradox behind America's current economic status: while many businesses increase in profit and wealth, jobs are cut and unemployment rates rise. He finally hits a soft spot with the CEO of Nike, who goes into depth about the company's mission and labor practices. Moore takes his point one step further (surprised?) by criticizing Bill Clinton and his failure to employ new economic ideals. If you enjoy Michael Moore's unabashed approach to discovering truth and awakening the public, you will more than likely enjoy this film. Also starring in this film are Rick Nielsen, Phil Knight, Studs Terkel, Garrison Keillor, Richard Jewell, Steve Forbes, Robert Dornan.moreless
