Being part of an entertainment industry family, I can’t help but assume that Trump is going to release his own “reality” television version of the elections, win or lose, tears or no tears, dumpster fire, self-immolation or wash. So I kinda love that someone is attempting to beat him to the punch. However, that someone is Michael Moore, who in my opinion is well, a little bit too much about Michael Moore. Which makes me wonder if this surprise documentary called TrumpLand being officially released by Moore on the 19th of October is just opportunism to cash in or a genuine piece of documentation.

One thing is for sure, I’m curious enough to want to see it.
More on Moore and TrumpLand can be read on this Guardian post making the rounds by clicking here.
So what do you think of this latest reveal in the surrealist nightmare I call the Trumpster Fire? Is Moore good intentioned? Will this be a documentary about Trump or Michael Moore? Does it matter? Do you want to see this film? Does each of our own biases cause us to never make pure art or literature? Does that question even make any sense? Is this a post-modernist play I’m in? Is this election over yet?
