  • Plenty of excitement--and controversy--is sure to surround this film from decorated documentarian Michael Moore. After previously taking on America's gun culture (BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE), the Bush administration (FAHRENHEIT 9/11), and America's healthcare crisis (SICKO), this timely film addresses what caused the financial crisis that stopped the world in 2008. CAPITALISM: A LOVE STORY finds Moore criticizing the government bailout of privately held businesses.
  • Critic Reviews
    "[Moore's] talent is evident in creating two hours of engrossing cinema by contrasting a fast-moving montage of '50s archive images extolling free enterprise with the economic disaster of the present."
    Hollywood Reporter

    "[T]here's something satisfying about watching Moore stage a citizen's arrest on the board of AIG."
    Rolling Stone

    3 stars out of 5 -- "With his trusty bullhorn and razor sharp comic skills at hand, Michael Moore stays true to formula and provides a funny economics lesson covering the recent Wall Street bailout, ongoing foreclosure crisis and the overall decline of American industry."
    Box Office

    "Clearly, Moore has not lost his provocateur's gift for stirring the pot, and it is heartening to have a filmmaker take on a subject this all-encompassing and almost taboo."
    Los Angeles Times

    3 stars out of 4 -- "CAPITALISM is impassioned, informative and entertaining....[The film] is as entertaining as ROGER & ME..."
    USA Today

    [A] movie that manages shrewdly, even brilliantly, to capitalize on the populist anger that has been sweeping the nation in the wake of financial turmoil, government bailouts and persistent unemployment.
    Wall Street Journal

    3.5 stars out of 4 -- "The primary weapon that Moore employs is shame. That corporations and financial institutions continue to exploit the majority of American, including tea baggers and Town Hall demonstrators, is a story that hasn't been told."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "At its best, CAPITALISM: A LOVE STORY is a searing outcry against the excesses of a cutthroat time."
    Entertainment Weekly

    3.5 stars out of 4 -- "The explosive CAPITALISM: A LOVE STORY is Moore's call to arms against the robber barons who shamelessly empty our pockets while we do nothing about it....Moore's fireball of a movie might change your life."
    Rolling Stone

    3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's about the disturbing times we live in, in which the banks appear to be above government and event the law....A funny and provocative film..."
