I'm thrilled to hear about Michael Moore's new documentary Capitalism: A Love Story on NPR today. Always attracted by Moore's provocative documentaries, I wonder what controversies this one will stir up in American society. From his previous sensitive subjects such as terrorism and health care system, he makes a further step to investigate the much more substantial and fundamental issue: Capitalism itself.
Placing the yellow crime scene tape around Wall Street is so very Michael Moore, reminds me of the mock funeral he staged outside the HMO's headquarters in Sicko. His confrontational style has a powerful comedy and irony effect which is somewhat reminiscent of Chaplin.
Can't wait to watch Capitalism. Oct 2nd - Yes!!
