Michael Moore triumphantly burst upon the moviemaking scene in 1989 with the groundbreaking hit Roger & Me, a hilarious, penetrating forerunner of the American independent film movement which was inducted to the 2013 National Film Registry by the Library of Congress and the National Film Preservation Board.

In this alternately comic and tragic documentary, Moore doggedly and hilariously tried to do what every working stiff dreams of: talk to the man at the top. His efforts to meet General Motors Chairman Roger Smith and persuade him to visit Flint, Michigan, frame a film that brilliantly uses biting humor to illuminate bitter truth. While slyly lampooning corporate America, Roger & Me exposes the devastating first stirrings of the economic tsunami that swallowed Flint, Detroit and all of southeastern Michigan. (Dir. by Michael Moore, 1989, USA, USA, 91 mins., Rated R)
