Capitalism: A Love Story
12:50 PM Apr 05, 2010
Michael Moore is at it again with his latest documentary, Capitalism: A Love Story (2009). In only the way that Michael Moore can, he takes the viewer, using his bedtime story voice, through the 1950's to present day explaining how capitalism has worked against the social good in American. The viewer will experience a mixed bag of feelings from outrage, to sadness, to just plain light hearted amusement and is left asking the question, "How has capitalism usurped democracy in the United States and why, as citizens, we have let this happen?"
Also a "must view" are the Special Features, especially New York Times Pulitzer Prize Winner Chris Hedges' "The Killing Machine Known as Capitalism" (talking about the effects of capitalism on the environment), "The Omnivore's Dilemma? - It's Capitalism","If We Had Just Listened to Jimmy Carter in 1979", and (love this title) "Commie Taxi Drivers - You Talkin to Me? - in Wisconsin."
"Filmmaker Michael Moore (Sicko, Fahrenheit 9/11) takes on capitalism's roots, the floundering U.S. economy, and 2008's global financial meltdown and subsequent bank bailout in this rousing documentary. Combining stories about those who suffer most from Corporate America's greed and insatiable thirst for profits and the people most responsible for myriad crises, Moore embarks on another shocking fact-finding rampage."-Netflix
