Capitalism A Love Story

www.amazon.com/s/?ur..
Category: Entertainment
On the 20-year anniversary of his groundbreaking masterpiece Roger & Me (1989), Michael Moore's Capitalism: A Love Story comes home to the issue he's been examining throughout his career: the disastrous impact of corporate dominance on the everyday lives of Americans (and by default, the rest of the world). But this time the culprit is much bigger than General Motors, and the crime scene far wider than Flint, Michigan. From Middle America, to the halls of power in Washington, to the global financial epicenter in Manhattan, Michael Moore will once again take film goers into uncharted territory. With both humor and outrage, Michael Moore's Capitalism: A Love Story explores a taboo question: What is the price that America pays for its love of capitalism? Years ago, that love seemed so innocent. Today, however, the American dream is looking more like a nightmare as families pay the price with their jobs, their homes and their savings. Moore takes us into the homes of ordinary people whose lives have been turned upside down; and he goes looking for explanations in Washington, DC and elsewhere. What he finds are the all-too-familiar symptoms of a love affair gone astray: lies, abuse, betrayal...and 14,000 jobs being lost every day. Capitalism: A Love Story is both a culmination of Moore's previous works and a look into what a more hopeful future could look like. It is Michael Moore's ultimate quest to answer the question he's posed throughout his illustrious filmmaking career: Who are we and why do we behave the way that we do?

The truth
The director of this movie , just brings the cold hard truth to the audience. I loved this movie , it tells you exactly what has happened and what is going to happen. Towards the end the movie felt like a drag and at points it got a bit too overboard but still its a great movie to watch once , might learn a thing or 2

Couldn't get into it
I am not a big fan of Moore, but I like the various stories and aspects of the crisis. The problem with this story is it is a little one-sided for my taste. I am also not a big fan of listening to whiners which seems this movie is full of. Sorry people if you don't pay your bills then you get your stuff taken away. In the movie there was a pilot complaining of credit card debt because he ran up $10k on food?? Cut me some slack... Wal-Mart employees working 110% for their company, ha! I guess none of those work in my Walmart.

Not One of His Best Films
I like Michael Moore. I really do.

But this movie is too long. Way too long. As part of his "intended audience", I had a real hard time sitting though it. It was all stuff that I already knew, and I kept waiting for some kind of kicker that would drive the whole thing home. Oh well.

Keep working Mr. Moore. I appreciate your efforts, even when they come up short for me.

Movie is a drag
I would always describe Michael Moore's movies as very one sided with lots of shock. This movie is no different in the first sense but it tends to drag. The movie is about 2 hours long and it feels much longer than that. I don't know if it cause I know his movie will be proved wrong in a 10 minute film or if he has lost his shock value.

None the less I would recommend you would see this film and do some studying after-wards. It is far worth it for the educational value with-in.

Even if you don't like Michael Moore or his political ideals or motivations I find it important to listen to the other side.

micahel moore is an IDIOT
Michael moore is a fat slug, that reminds me of jaba the hut. In this documentary he uses his best skill: telling lies. Moore once said "Canadians have free health care" -- as any human being with a brain can find out this is just not true. The tax payers pay for the health care. Moore is so full of s$#t that if you gave him an enema he would be buried in a match box.

Another Gutsy Production
Wow, Michael Moore must have taken some punches approaching security guards at Bank of America etc. In this movie Moore:

- looks at why GM has failed compared to German and Japanese rivals,

- tries to understand derivatives,

- flashes back to the Financial Crisis of '08/'09 with footage of senators revolting in Congress about the bailout.

He also shows stirring footage of:

- widows and widowers who had policies taken out against their late spouses by their former employers

- families being evicted from their homes after 4 decades

Wall Street is in charge is the charge and I (sadly) happen to agree. While I do not agree socialism will work, I do not have an alternative to capitalism.

I look forward to the sequel in a few years Michael...IPOs are on the up, Tech stocks are booming like it's 1999 and valuations are starting to look heady already. Perhaps then things will be a bit more dire. Bailout is NOT the solution. In recessions, one needs to let those whose excesses got the better of them be subjected to the raw forces of supply and demand.

Depressing film.
This was actually the first Moore film I have seen. Always thought of him as a leftist nutjob. Still kinda do, as he is trying to appeal to all those that have been harmed by 'capitalism' all the while it is the capitalist market that allows him to succeed as a filmmaker - albeit his films don't seem to spark much revenue, just controversy.

There is a flaw that several other reviews of this film pointed out. Moore titles the film "Capitalism, a love story" while it should have been titled "Corporatism, a love story." Reason being, capitalism aspires to have a free market. Capitalism also encourages innovation and success, all good things. Corporatism is what as taken away the free market and corrupted the innovation and success to be directed towards the top, forgetting about the blue collar guys that make it all happen. Greed had overtaken the corporation to only look for profits at the expense of jobs, and the well-being of the economy.

Then the film ended up being what looked like a plug for Obama citing that he wants to change it all. Wonder what Moore thinks of Obama now.....?

I don't care of any of that. I just want to trade.

Right or Wrong a valuable film
If we can count on Michael Moore to provide anything more than a controversial film, it is an interesting viewpoint and a wealth of data we wouldn't have seen otherwise. I liked this film if for no other reason than it made me think. It prompted me to take a good hard look at the capitalist system and ask myself "Does this work". In the end I'm still a capitalist, but i'm wary of the system. I'm not foolish enough to believe it's a perfect system. I recommend this film, it's an eye opener.

Revealing
I have not seen many Moore films but this one I thought was pretty good. He touched on many good points and brought out many points the average blind American would never even think about. I was not surprised on points he brought out like corporations taking out a dead peasant payment when their employees would pass away when the family members would not see a dime of that $, which proves that the employees for these corporations are worth more to them dead than they are alive. Only thing I disagree with is how he puts it all together at the end, bringing it back into politics and directs it toward Obama taking office and how these corporations are afraid of what he will do when he takes office....that is totally false considering some of the corporations he touched on in the documentary were the biggest $ contributors to his Moore's golden child Obama's campaign. Other than that thought he brought up some good points that people need to be aware of. Suggestion...change the name to Corporatism: A Love Story
