|Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Inspired, darkly ironic documentary-style film about one man's attempts to track down General Motors chairman Roger Smith, to show him what his factory closing did to the town of Flint, Michigan, where 40,000 jobs were lost. Filmmaker/narrator Moore creates an irresistible blend of documentary and humorous essay in this unique piece of Americana. Followed in 1992 by Moore's 24m. short, PETS OR MEAT: THE RETURN TO FLINT.
