The task of critically deconstructing capitalism in its present form (corporatocracy or neoliberalism) in just about two hours is an impossible one however I praise Moore for his political commitment and effort to shed some light on an issue with critical & long-lasting implications. This film is a well-intentioned convoluted pot where everything goes but raises serious questions & much-needed awareness.
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 appreciate this documentary very much because it raises a big question: when one is manipulated by a clever one, who's fault is it for the disaster that follows? The poor for their foolish consent, or the sly business man for being absolutely immoral. Well, probably both sides, some will say, and that's why this problem still persists.
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.
I don't think it's possible to call Michael Moore a bad filmmaker. Certainly you can disagree with his politics, and you may not like his style or his methods, but he knows exactly what he wants and how to get it. He may honestly be one of the best filmmakers working today.
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.
El problema que tengo con este documental es que se ocupa demasiado en satanizar (literalmente) el capitalismo ('Jesús no hubiera sido capitalista', 'el capitalismo es la maldad', etc.) pero no brinda ningún sistema alternativo. Y toda la teolología típicamente gringa con-final-feliz del "yes we could" de la campaña de Obama es simplemente odioso...
Once again Moore finds a really interesting topic that all should be thinking about and milks it for all its worth. Once again, however, he fails to hit it out of the park because his egocentric antics get in the way. Greed is highlighted in all of its forms and Capitalism: A Love Story ends up being a powerful film lessened ever so slightly by its provocateur's insistence on including himself in his work.
