Capitalism: A Love Story

Written by: FFT Webmaster | August 23rd, 2009

American filmmaker Michael Moore marks the 20th anniversary of his debut film “Roger and Me,” which won the Toronto Film Festival’s People’s Choice award back in 1989, with a new documentary: “Capitalism, a love story.”

Back then, Moore targeted General Motors. In his latest project, he takes aim at “the whole system.”

“It’s a crime story,” Michael Moore says of his latest documentary. “But it’s also a war story about class warfare. And a vampire movie, with the upper 1 percent feeding off the rest of us. And, of course, it’s also a love story. Only it’s about an abusive relationship.” Yes, that’s right, the intrepid filmmaker whose previous movies have tackled such divisive issues as gun control (Bowling for Columbine), terrorism (Fahrenheit 9/11), and the health-care crisis (Sicko) will be taking on the entire free-market economy in his cynically titled new film, Capitalism: A Love Story.  His latest opus will be headlining the 34th Toronto International Film Festival next month.

Here is the trailer for that film.
