2. As I remember, and I suppose I could google for veracity,

Michael Moore made that film with a hand held camera and sold his house to get the money to produce it. When it played in theaters he specified that one seat in the house had to be kept free for Mr. (was it) Smith the head of GM
whom he was trying to find an audience with. He showed us Flynt Michigan, the deterioration, poverty and desperation by walking the streets, talking to the people, looking for a meeting with Mr. Smith.

The film made an incredibly deep impression on me at the time, and now, a career later, Michael Moore kept giving us truth in film after film using many of the same ways to do it that have become characteristic of his work. I am so happy he became successful and found acceptance and laurels. To me he is one of the heros of the last and this century.
