It's now available on ComCast via Stars. It's an important film to see. ---BBB

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?

@BumbleBeeBoogie,
Franklin D. Roosevelt's Second Bill of Rights film. Sadly he died before he could make it law.

I haven't seen Moore's film but the fact that wages for 80% of the population have stagnated since 1979 while wages for the top quintile soared as the that same profiting group blamed labor unions for the fact that executives were squeezing the working class must be made as well known as the Ten Commandments.

@dyslexia,
I am a fanatic of Michael Moore's style of ubermuckraking. It's ashame that none of his works actually seemingly do very much to change policy. It seems he only preaches to the converted.

@tsarstepan,
yeah, the rest of the country just gets angry at Michael and ridicules him.

I liked the hot doctors from France, England and Cuba that appeared in Sicko.

@BumbleBeeBoogie,

Michael Moore is a fake.

He is just a propagandist, essentially just twisting facts and inventing new ones.

There is no reason to cry, with nor without fury.

@OmSigDAVID,
Have you ever researched his facts? I have once or twice, but not in great detail.

The American right has a terrible record when it comes to facts. Does that bother you?

Finally, I would suggest that were Michael to read any three or four of your political comments here, he would come to the conclusion that you are a fake and a propagandist who twists existing and invents new ones.
