Capitalism A Love story by Micheal Moore
'Capitalism a Love Story- by Michael Moore. Love him or hate him he's at it again. Michael is about to release a new film called 'Capitalism a Love Story'
Michael first came on the scene around ten years ago by protesting and filming unethical behaviour by Corporate America. He then produced the Film Bowling for Columbine which I personally thought was brilliant. In the movie/documentary he bated former film star Charlton Heston on his gun beliefs as well as his involvement with the National Rifle Association. This movie gave a riveting portrayal of America's love affair with firearms.
Michael then went on to produce Fahrenheit 9/11 another great movie about America and its relationship to Muslims after 9/11; I found this film a little more quirky. Then a more recent one is 'Sicko' again this berates Corporate America’s unhealthy and greedy role in the Health care system.
The new movie is set to be a hit even a block buster given the American peoples distaste for bailing out Corporate America with so much of taxpayers money which will eventually have to be paid back with interest huge interest no doubt by taxpayers. Sadly the alternative of nor saving the corporates would probable be a return to an America in like it was in the Great Depression.
Whilst I enjoyed some of what the movie had to say I felt it gave a much less than powerful punch than say his other movies such as Columbine or Fahrenheit 9/11. The theme was the same the corruption of corporate America. Whilst they are are many examples such as Enron Fraud case some of the examples that Moore tried to intimidate by fronting up to corporate headquarters asking to see the CEO ware less than convincing. I think Moore could have handled this aspect better. He could not nor should he expect to see the MD without notice if that. And if he does he should be expected to put forward his questions in advance so that they could be properly and carefully considered.
Michael Moore says his film Capitalism: A Love Story is dedicated to "good people . . . who've had their lives ruined" by the quest for profit.
After success at Cannes, Moore's film was to premiere yesterday in his first appearance at the Venice Film Festival. It was warmly received at a press showing Saturday and won positive reviews. Variety called it one of Moore's "best pics."
