Documentary
Michael Moore puts forth the argument that capitalism is a flawed, failing system, and he uses the recent financial disaster to back up his theories. America is run by big corporations in his opinion, and he makes some rather strong arguments to that effect. Moore has driven me crazy with his manipulative ways and ambush tactics in the past, but his approach this time out is a little more reasonable. One of the film’s most moving moments comes from simply watching Franklin Roosevelt talk about a new Bill of Rights in the waning days of his administration, something that didn’t come to pass. It’s amazing to hear what he had in mind for the country, considering where things are right now. Moore can be infuriating, but his brand of antagonism and propaganda works well for this subject. He certainly gets you thinking.

Charleston City Paper Michael Moore overplays his hand in Capitalism: A Love Story A large section of the American public may write off film as simply a form of entertainment and not a respectable art form, but Michael Moore proves that movies can be more: catalysts for debate and even social change, a way for the underdog to take on the powers that be. by Felicia Feaster 09/30/2009
