    Hi there.

    I've been reading with great interest about Michael Moore's new movie 'Bowling for Columbine' and it got me wondering if any of his other creations (Roger & Me, etc) are available on DVD and if they're as interesting as they sound?

    regards

    I'm a bit of Moore fan...

    I don't think that Roger and Me or The Big One are available on DVD. I bought mine on NTSC import tape. I'd be glad to lend them to you if you want.

    Roger and Me is, in places, quite distressing. The BigOne is much more humourfull and as such is more accessible and easier to watch. Moore's work is deliberately unsettling though so you can't expect to watch it and come away jumping for joy.

    His movies aren't available but I just noticed you can get the 2 series of his show The Awful Truth on DVD.

    I really hope Bowling for Columbine gets a release eventually.

    I haven't seen the Big One, but "Roger and Me" is excellent. The theme is pretty depressing, but Moore manages to pull it off in a way that doesn't totally bum you out.

    I'm counting the days until Bowling for Columbine. I'm expecting it to be my fav of the year.

    Thanks Gordon.

    Might have to take you up on that offer.

    Was just looking on the Michael Moore.com website at it appears he's in London doing a one man stage show for a few weeks. Might just have to check that out...

    Especially if you love bunny rabbits! :(

    I used to love his show he did on BBC2/Channel4 - especially the stuff where he would blow the whistle on Corporate America! :D

    Roger and Me was released in the UK by Warners. It's deleted now, but can still be found on the shelves in some shops.
