On the 20-year anniversary of his groundbreaking masterpiece Roger & Me, Michael Moore’s Capitalism: A Love Story comes home to the issue he’s been examining throughout his career: the disastrous impact of corporate dominance on the everyday lives of Americans.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
This is a fucking terrible documentary. It is a meandering mess lacking any semblance of a thesis and spends most of its two hour runtime trying to manipulate and scare the audience rather than inform them. I'm sorry, but saying "capitalism is bad; socialism is good" is an extremely juvenile spin on an extremely complex issue.
As an ardent moderate I always find myself exhaustively frustrated by the liberals' failure to address the fact that capitalism is not synonymous with corporatism (aka what we currently have.) I also don't see how anyone could not acknowledge the system's deficiencies and accept that there may at least be alterations that can be made in order to improve it's functionality in accordance to a changing world.
The information are valuable, but it feels more like watching a tv news program than a documentary film.
a better film about study of capitalism had been made 100 years ago by Griffith in A Corner in Wheat.
Moore gets points for his sense of humor, activism, and his sincere compassion for the common man. However, he is too much of an ideologue for his films to work as documentaries and his subjects are too vast to be covered appropriately in a mere 2 hours.
Don't allow yourself to be lectured by a stanceless man who easily betrays his "personal" convictions and constantly changes his remarks and opinions to fit the general - FUCK MICHAEL MOORE AND FUCK ALL HIS FILMS
Elevar a figura de Obama como o salvador dos EUA quando a política externa da sua administração foi mais destrutiva que a da de Bush. Apesar de defender a valorização das classes sociais mais baixas americanas e quem as apoia, há que perceber a diferença entre quem se serve delas para se eleger e quem se interessa realmente pelos princípios humanos. Obama e a sua administração não são, definitivamente, o último.
I used to enjoy and worship his way of making documentary, until I watched this one recently. Disappointments all the way through the film to see Michael Moore weakly brought up his arguments. It became more disappoint when we are on the same side.
