Christmas Movies II

film 16 of 25

Roger and Me

Film Review by Dean Duncan Jul 6, 2015

RogerandMeSpeaking seasonally, this documentary records some forced evictions that take place on Christmas Day, or thereabouts. These evictions understandably stimulate glancing harsh language from the newly dispossessed, the which language gives this film an R-rating, which causes many people not to see it, and therefore spares them from a chance to seriously consider some of the more unseemly common practices of the entrepeneurial capitalism that they so strongly, even idolatrously espouse. Mind you, this direness is not the whole of that picture. Mind you further, Mr. Moore does, indeed, have a thing or two to answer for. But GM was in conspicuous profit at the time, was it not? “Are there no prisons? Are there no workhouses?”
