Capitalism: A Love Story
I was so hyped about GOOD HAIR that when I saw the promos for Michael Moore’s new film, I was a little let down. I am both a friend and fan of Michael’s, but the promo didn’t move me like FARENHEIT 9/11, for example. But I know Mike always brings it, so with my first window of time to see a movie in weeks, I went to check it out.
CAPITALISM: A LOVE STORY is not a good movie, it’s a great one, and it should be mandatory viewing for every American. I’m tempted to say it’s Moore’s best film, but I don’t want to denigrate the memory of seeing ROGER & ME, BOWLING FOR COLUMBIE and FARENHEIT 9/11 for the first time. But the scope of the film is so vast, the information is presented in such an accessible manner, and his growth as a filmmaker is so clear, it feels like a career summary.
I want to say more, but I don’t want to do any spoilers. Let’s just talk about it on the forum after you see it, okay?
