Added DiffLines:

* HarsherInHindsight: Knowing about the water crisis that affected the town 25 years later really goes to show how things really haven't changed.

Added DiffLines:

* NightmareFuel: The scenes with Rhonda Britton, who is [[DissonantSerenity disturbingly happy and unapologetic]] about the fact that she makes a living by killing animals. The early scenes where she discusses her job and how she does it are eerie enough, but then we actually get to see her slaughter and skin a rabbit. It's [[ViolenceIsDisturbing not glorified in any way]] and is probably the scariest moment in the film.


* GenreTurningPoint: Before ''Roger and Me'', documentaries (of a non-musical nature at least) had been mostly confined to film festivals. ''Roger and Me'' demonstrated that one could make a documentary that the masses would want to see, allowing other documentaries, including Moore's later films, to achieve widespread financial and critical success.
