Michael Francis Moore is an American filmmaker and author known for his stridently left-wing political opinions, [[AuthorTract which he uses his documentary films to advocate]]. He is [[LoveItOrHateIt very controversial]] for this reason. Nonetheless, no fewer than ''three'' of his films have at one time or another held world records as "highest-grossing documentary not concerning music" and he has also received significant critical acclaim for them.

* ''Capitalism: A Love Story'' (2009): This film studies the ongoing recession and, naturally, capitalism itself, particularly regarding the United States. Fittingly/ironically, it failed to recoup its US$20-million budget in its theatrical release.

* ''Film/TheBigOne'' (1998): Follows Moore on his book tour for the best-seller "Downsize This: Threats From An Unarmed American" as he tours cities where companies are closing down plants and opening factories overseas despite making huge profits. Moore attempts to meet with [=CEOs=] and ask them the reason for their questionable decisions, most notable for Moore's meeting with Nike CEO Phil Knight.[[spoiler: He tries to convince Knight to build a shoe factory in Flint to no avail, though he does succeed in getting him to donate $10,000 to Flint schools (on the condition that Moore matched his donation).]]

* AuthorTract: Moore makes no effort to hide the fact that his documentaries are made to promote his personal agendas, and it would take a staggering lack of perception to be caught off-guard by how overly liberal they are.
* BannedInChina: [[invoked]] PlayedForLaughs (albeit very dark ones) in TheStinger to ''Roger and Me'': "This film cannot be shown within the city of Flint. All the movie theaters have closed."

** Moore blows up the main characters HQ in ''Film/TeamAmericaWorldPolice''. Creator/TreyParkerAndMattStone write this scene after taking umbrage with Moore for using their quotes out of context to support his personal beliefs in ''Film/BowlingForColumbine'', and even stuffed his puppet with ham before blowing it up.

* AuthorTract: Freely admits that this is the point of much of his work. Given how he advertises stuff, you'd really have to be a dumb ass to not know you're getting a face full of liberal opinions.
