Michael Moore’s Capitalism: A Love Story examines the disastrous impact of corporate dominance on the everyday lives of Americans, and by default, the rest of the world. Michael Moore will once again take film goers into uncharted territory. With both outrage and humor, Michael Moore’s Capitalism: A Love Story explores the price that America pays for its love of capitalism. Over the years the American dream has turned into a nightmare, as Americans families loose with their homes, jobs, and savings. Moore takes us into the homes of ordinary people whose lives have been drastically affected; and he goes looking for explanations in Washington. What he finds are the all-too-familiar symptoms of a love affair gone astray: lies, abuse, betrayal, and 14,000 jobs being lost every day.


Moore has not lost his zest for confrontational antics. He asks New York financial workers to explain derivatives, drives an armored car up to AIG corporate headquarters and demands the company return federal bailout funds, even surrounds all of Wall Street with yellow “crime scene” tape to emphasize his low opinion of the area’s activities.The main point Moore wants to make, is his notion that capitalism is a scheme set up to make a profit on absolutely anything. In recent decades Capitalism has turned American society into a culture that only values money. The documentary is a culmination of Moore’s previous works and a look into what a more hopeful future could look like. What do you think?

    I know that he has a LOT of critics out there, but I applaud Michael Moore for exploring the issues that nobody else seems to want to talk about in this country. Every one of his documentaries has been relevant and needed in its time. And he’s not afraid of offending people or exposing the dirty secrets for the sake of putting the truth out there. Also, as a documentary filmmaker, he’s extremely thorough. I don’t think that people understand the amount of work that goes into getting the info, interviews, and footage that he’s able to gather. Whether you like his films or not, the fact that a documentary is able to contend on the big screen with feature films is amazing. I’m excited to see the film and the responses that come after.

    I love this man, because he is doing things that alot of us really want to do.
    All of us would like to nail those SOB to the wall for raping this country!

    i know people that escaped from communism, so anyone that agrees with moore’s ideas is also an idiot. no one can truly appreciate american ideals until they have lived in a communist country themselves, been persecuted for being intelligent and hard working, and had their identity and rights taken away!

    Pookie makes valid points, as does Ashleyel. I have never seen a Michael Moore film, but this one seems to have my attention. Maybe its MIA in the background lmao idk, but with all that has happened in the last 10 yrs or so I feel its time the truth come to light. God forbid anything ever happen to him, but he will go down as a revolutionary! He isn’t afraid to talk about what is really going on. On the other hand in reference to Pookie, I feel Americans aren’t intelligent enough to know whats going on right in front of their faces. People on our country value all of the wrong things! This was not brought to my attention until I lived in another country and witnessed our news papers reporting Dr. Phil visiting Britney Spears, while other countries had Obama and Hilary on the front page…SMFH! This is exactly why the government gets away with shh like this, because we are more concerned about ‘Jon and Kate plus 8’ and what Kanye West has to say, as opposed to real life crises, not about some random divorce and some “controversial” words and stunts for money.

    Wake up people!
