Capitalism: A Love Story

Infamous documentarian/activist Michael Moore explores the root causes of the global economic meltdown and takes a comical look at the corporate and political shenanigans that culminated in what he describes as the biggest robbery in the history of this country - the massive transfer of US taxpayer money to private financial institutions.

He takes us into the homes of ordinary people whose lives have been turned upside down, 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.

Whether Capitalism matches "Fahrenheit 9/11" or underperforms like "Sicko" will depend on how much workers of the world are ready to unite behind the message.

Like most of his movies, Capitalism is a tragedy disguised as a comedy; it’s also an entertainment.

No matter where you stand, there's no denying "Capitalism" is flat-out polemic wizardry.

Moore's fireball of a movie could change your life. It had me laughing with tears in my eyes.

The film's title is never explained. What does Moore mean? Maybe it's that capitalism means never having to say you're sorry.

Lacks a cohesive story line due to the magnitude of its subject, but a toned-down Moore presents a heartfelt and simplified comment on capitalism today.
