Michael Moore in TrumpLand

Michael Moore in TrumpLand Information

Michael Moore in TrumpLand is a 2016 documentary film by Michael Moore about the 2016 United States presidential election campaign. The film is based on a one-person show that Moore originally wanted to perform in Midland Theatre in Newark, Ohio on October 7, but management of the Midland Theatre chose not to honor a rental contract. He eventually held the show at the Murphy Theatre in Wilmington, Ohio, with the movie based on a recording of that performance over two nights in October.


The film's premiere, just 11 days after it was shot, was on October 18, 2016 at the IFC Center in New York City, where tickets for the 400 seat venue were given out to the public for free. The premiere was followed by a Q&A with Moore. General showings around the United States started October 19, with the announcement of digital downloads available in the near future. Moore had announced the event on Twitter.


On review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 55%, based on 33 reviews, with an average rating of 5.7/10. On Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating, the film has a score of 56 out of 100, based on 17 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews".

In a mixed review, The Guardian wrote, "TrumpLand is a fascinating document, but undeniably awkward in presentation." A critic for the WAZ commented that others would not be convinced by the film after the premiere.
