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?
