Capitalism: A Love Story (2009)

Capitalism: A Love Story Movie

Starring: Michael Moore

Director: Michael Moore

Release Date: September 23rd, 2009
Release Date: 26th February, 2010

Synopsis: Capitalism: A Love Story film explores the root causes of the global economic meltdown that began in 2007 and takes a comical look in what Michael Moore has described as “the biggest robbery in the history of this country” – the massive transfer of U.S. taxpayer money to private financial institutions. The film alternates between a fierce critique of the status quo, personal portraits of the suffering caused by the recent economic crisis, and comical social satire. Some featured stories include an internal Citibank report happily declaring the United States a “plutonomy”, with the top 1 percent of the population controlling more financial wealth than the bottom 95 percent. Additionally, the film contrasts the present economic reality in America with archival footage of US president Franklin D. Roosevelt calling for a Second Bill of Rights that would guarantee all Americans “a useful job, a decent home, adequate health care, and a good education.”

TIFF documentary programmer Thom Powers remarked: “As one of the few people who have seen a version of Capitalism … I can testify that Moore is working at the top of his game with a talented crew. And that’s about all I can say about its secretive details.” A new trailer was released on YouTube on August 21, 2009.

    looks good. I hope they will have closed captioning/subtitles available when it comes out in the cinema. I hate having to wait for the DVD release.
