"Slacker Uprising" by Michael Moore

Slacker Uprising by Michael Moore, Distributed As A Free Download | Laughing Squid

“Slacker Uprising” takes place in the wake of “Fahrenheit 9/11,” during the run-up to the 2004 election, as I traveled for 42 days across America, visiting 62 cities in a failed attempt to remove George W. Bush from office. My goal was to help turn out a record number of young voters and others who had never voted before. (That part was a success. Young adults voted in greater numbers than in any election since 18-year-olds were given the right to vote. And the youth vote was the only age group that John Kerry won.)

What I encountered during the tour and the filming was both inspiring and frightening, so I thought, hey, this might make for a funny and enlightening movie! Each night, thousands would show up to volunteer in the Slacker Army against Bush. This drove local Republicans nuts. In one state they tried to have me arrested. At two colleges, rich donors offered to donate more money to the college if they would ban me from campus. Nearly a half-dozen universities kept the Slacker Uprising tour off their campuses. But there was no stopping this movement. By the time we got to Florida, 16,000 people a night were showing up.

It was clear that young people were the ones who were going to save the day — just as they are in this year’s election.

Zatoichi the Blind Swordsman -- rainy day fight in the mud

Zatoichi (2003) - Rainy day fight scene

This is a very weird and fantastic film. Under appreciated, is what I'd call it. It had interesting moments where the rhythm of daily life would burst into song, which I can never decide if it meant to give us understanding of Zatoichi's way of hearing the world, of it's just playfulness from the director. Possibly both?
