Capitalism: A Love Story-The official title of Michael Moore’s new Documentary

Capatalism a love storyDocumentary filmmaker Michael Moore has announced the title of his new film that will chronicle the financial meltdown, Wall Street’s greed and the bailout. It will be titled Capitalism: A Love Story. It’s a perfect title for thi s film and I’m very much looking forward to seeing it this October.

If The Dark Knight’s Commissioner Gordon (Gary Oldman) were describing the film he would probably say “This is the film we don’t want but the one that we need.” I fully support Moore’s effort here to call out Wall Street and the massive GREED of many who have paralyzed our economy. While movies usually only have a short term effect on the public’s overall thought patterns one can only hope that many of the massive mistakes and criminal acts that got us here in the first place will not be repeated. A film like this can only help.

“It will be the perfect date movie,” Moore said in an announcement Wednesday. “It’s got it all—lust, passion, romance and 14,000 jobs being eliminated every day. It’s a forbidden love, one that dare not speak its name. Heck, lets just say it: It’s capitalism.” 

While this is a free country and everyone is entitled to their opinion I’m amazed at some of the Michael Moore hate on the internet. I guess I didn’t realize everybody makes more than 250K a year and believes Wall Street has their greatest interest at heart. Joe the plumber syndrome appears to be alive and well. I know people who have worked on Wall Street and they sure don’t feel that way. Personally, I’m a fan of Moore’s work as I believe it’s both relevant and important. Roger and Me, Fahrenheit 911, and Sicko are all films I’m glad I saw and feel the better for it. I’ll be there on Oct 2nd to see Moore’s next venture Capitalism: A Love Story. I have no doubt Moore will deliver something quite thought provoking.
