American filmmaker Michael Moore marks the 20th anniversary of his debut film “Roger and Me,” which won the Toronto Film Festival’s People’s Choice award back in 1989, with a new documentary: “Capitalism, a love story.”
Back then, Moore targeted General Motors. In his latest project, he takes aim at “the whole system.”
“It’s a crime story,” Michael Moore says of his latest documentary. “But it’s also a war story about class warfare. And a vampire movie, with the upper 1 percent feeding off the rest of us. And, of course, it’s also a love story. Only it’s about an abusive relationship.” Yes, that’s right, the intrepid filmmaker whose previous movies have tackled such divisive issues as gun control (Bowling for Columbine), terrorism (Fahrenheit 9/11), and the health-care crisis (Sicko) will be taking on the entire free-market economy in his cynically titled new film, Capitalism: A Love Story. His latest opus will be headlining the 34th Toronto International Film Festival next month.
Here is the trailer for that film.
