Michael Moore lays bare the truth about economic crisis in America.
Capitalism: A Love Story is probably Moore’s best made and most restrained documentary yet. The problem is whilst some of the shock tactics employed in previous works, especially Bowling for Columbine, left a bad taste in the mouth, they did make for entertaining cinema. At over two hours long Capitalism… is pretty slow going in places. The other problem is that because of the explosion of conspiracy theories/truth movements on the internet people already know a lot of what is shown in this movie.
Whilst Fahrenheit 9/11 was genuinely shocking at the time, nothing about this documentary really shocked me. If you are new to the subject of capitalism/the banking crisis etc however and you are looking for a good starting point, look no further.
