Watch Michael Moore's new movie "Slacker Uprising" for free

Moore Michael Moore has made his latest movie, Slacker Uprising, available gratis for download here. Shot during his 60-city tour of college campuses in 2004 designed to motivate young people to register to vote (against Bush), the movie was shown at last year's Toronto Film Festival and hasn't garnered very kind reviews.

The trailer for the movie makes no mention of the fact that Moore's efforts failed. Instead, it just states that "young people voted for change in a landslide" and "a new political generation was born." Moore is releasing the film for free, presumably, in hopes of having some effect at the voting booth this November. Here's part of his statement encouraging people to download Slacker Uprising:

2845932447_f939449c50_3 "I'm giving you my blanket permission to not only download it, but also to email it, burn it and share it with anyone and everyone (in the U.S. and Canada only). I want you to use Slacker Uprising in any way you see fit to help with the election or to do the work that you do in your community... It's completely free - I don't want to see a dime from this. And if you want, you can charge admission or ask for a donation if it's to raise money for a candidate, a voter drive, or for any non-profit or educational purpose. In other words - it's yours!"

No word yet on how many people have taken Moore up on his offer, although I'm guessing there are more than a few groups that will take a pass, but thanks anyway.

I like his films, and always make a point to see them,b ut even I am going to pass on this one. Even if it is free. It just seems rather pointless to me. His efforts failed. It's like a whole lot of huffing and puffing that leads to nothing. The slackers stayed home that election, as they usually do. Maybe they will come out THIS election seeing as everything has gone to hell in a handbasket thanks to the great chimp commander, but who knows.

can't fight this feeling anymore

Even young voters who aren't exactly slackers stay away from the polls in droves. The Obama camp seems to think this year will be different; I'm skeptical, frankly.

I like the "My Pet Goat" photo but I don't see me checking this out any time soon, and I loved Bowling for Columbine.
