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 one thing that all are afraid to talk about,and that is that almost all of these top bankers are Jews and if they were all Italian-American then all would point that out and call it a Bankers mafia.

    Fuck this. You think you got it bad? What about the mothers and fathers who have to watch their children get slaughtered for oil? Just think about that America. Maybe it’s time to get off your fat ass and do something about it already.

    funny thing about human beings,

    majority’s so often fail to act for them selves,  an example i like is prisoners in jails,  they out number the guards in most cases, they’re the kinda ppl you really should be afraid of.  but can they get together for half an hour and agree to just walk the fuck out!?    don’t get me wrong i’m real glad they don’t,  but it’s a great example of a majority thats to blind to see.

    i’m not an american,  but i’ve watched a few docs here about the fed,  and again that’s a great example of an entire nation gettin’ shafted by a handfull of greedy fuckers and them getting away with it..

     This offered some useful information, but I had to weed through the representation.  Unfortunately it was as biased as Fox. Giving praise and adoration to the dem presidents, while trashing all of the republican ones. If you can’t see that Obama, Clinton, and Carter were as wretched as The Bush’s…. That’s bias.

    We, in New Zealand, now have one of the foremost bankster architects of the sub prime blah derivative blah thefts, as our Prime Minister. I predict that he will be shown to be the most accomplished conmen in New Zealand’s history. That man is Mr John Key. May he rot in hell

    i feel so sorry for these poor people and wonder… just wonder with a quiet anger why these giants of “industry” have to cash in on the people that simply tried to live peacefully, as a person born outside of the USA i have no idea how to react to such sickening greed and filth in that country but as you can see I do have reactions to what I have seen but me feeling bad wont bring back or help these poor people in the hell they are subjected to. think about that next time anyone wishes to promote there political forum or make stupid comments, people died for this, lives were destroyed simply for the all mighty dollar.

    Isn’t it funny how in the “good old” capitalist United
    States in the 1920′s people were going around lynching black people who weren’t
    true Americans. Whereas ten years earlier the supposedly malicious evil bolshevist’s,
    the people that would eventually form the Soviet Union, published a document
    that proclaimed “Equality and sovereignty of peoples of Russia
