MURDER BY PROXY is a feature-length documentary that examines the growing phenomenon of spree killings in the United States. Almost everyone is familiar with the term "going postal." The expression is commonly used - sometimes even for comedic effect. But do people know what it actually means? The film explores the basic question of what brings a seemingly normal person to the point of committing mass murder.

After six students lie dead at the hands of a fellow classmate, an unlikely bond forms in the aftermath. Alicia is a Goth misfit who hates the world and everyone in it, and may know more about the shooting than she's telling. Deanna, one of the injured, is a classic overachiever who's now confined to a hospital bed. Brought together by fate and united by secrets, they couldn't be less alike or need each other more.

This is a highly personal, wryly humorous look at the closing of several General Motors plants in Flint, Michigan, the hometown of filmmaker Michael Moore, which resulted in the elimination of 35,000 jobs. Armed with a razor-sharp wit, compassion and more than a little chutzpah, Moore offers his perceptions of what went wrong in Flint, and chronicles his much-thwarted efforts to meet face-to-face with the big man himself, GM chairman Roger Smith.

Armed only with a camera and a sharp sense of humor, Moore is back in the nation's heartland and searching for an executive - any executive - who will respond to one tough question: If Fortune 500 companies are posting record-setting profits, why do they continue laying off thousands of workers?

Movie Summary

BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE is an alternately humorous and horrifying film about the United States. It is a film about the state of the Union, about the violent soul of America. Why do 11,000 people die in America each year at the hands of gun violence? The talking heads yelling from every TV camera blame everything from Satan to video games. But are we that much different from many other countries? What sets us apart? How have we become both the master and victim of such enormous amounts of violence?
