Critic Reviews for Capitalism: A Love Story
Inevitably, this is tricked out with Moore's all-too-familiar stunts... all of them subject to the (capitalist?) law of diminishing returns.
A barbed study of the American economy puts capitalism in the dock but somehow fails to convict.
The thesis that rapacious capitalism has horrific social consequences is credible and well illustrated, if hardly eye-opening to European viewers.
For all his cheap tactics, Moore mounts a persuasive case that something is rotten in the current economic system.
Michael Moore has succeeded in getting a film on this subject actually released in cinemas: a very sharp and entertaining one at that.
Audience Reviews for Capitalism: A Love Story
Michael Moore is more serious than ever before, offering us another very well-edited and thought-out documentary that manages to leave us outraged and indignant just as well over what people and a corrupt system are capable of doing for money.
Michael Moore once again takes on the capitalist establishment and describes how a system that once worked for all was perverted and resulted in the dumbfounding bank bail out scandal of recent years. Personally I think that the citizens of the U.S. in particular need to stop thinking of "socialism" as a dirty word; they have basically been brainwashed by their fat cat overlords into thinking that socialism is the same thing as "totalitarian communism" which is utterly absurd. Watching ordinary working class Joes describing Obama as a "socialist" as if a vote for him was like voting for Chairman Mao is frankly astonishing to anyone outside the American borders. Socialism is a system that works perfectly well within a capitalist framework and is basically just a set of rules organised around social justice and a fairer, more equitable distribution of wealth thus regulating the rich and powerful, preventing them from the wholesale exploitation of the lower classes (ie. the 95% of the rest us!). The current financial climate is frankly unsustainable and its logical conclusion would be the population of the Earth becoming the 1% of billionaires sitting in a nice eco-bubble of their own construction while the rest of the planet and its population rots away to apocalyptic oblivion like a old episode of Star Trek. It's about time the working and middle classes took the power back and realised that a vote for the corporate puppets that are the right wing conservative parties is like volunteering for slavery. Rant over!
A shocking and interesting film by Michael Moore, other terrific vision about a USA problem. Fresh.
