Michael Moore's view on what happened to the United States after September 11; and how the Bush Administration allegedly used the tragic event to push forward its agenda for unjust wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Capitalism: A Love Story examines the impact of corporate dominance on the everyday lives of Americans (and by default, the rest of the world). The film moves from Middle America, to the halls of power in Washington, to the global financial epicenter in Manhattan. With both humor and outrage, the film explores the question: What is the price that America pays for its love of capitalism? Families pay the price with their jobs, their homes and their savings. Moore goes 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 also presents what a more hopeful future could look like. Who are we and why do we behave the way that we do?Written by
Moore claims the word capitalism isn't in the US Constitution. This wouldn't be possible anyway since the Constitution was drafted in 1788 and the first recorded English use of capitalism wasn't until 1792. See more »

Capitalism offers people the freedom to choose where they work and what they do.

I seen a couple of Micheal Moore movies in the past and although I didn't agree entirely with what those films try to convey. But what those films did was got me thinking and thus I decided to check this movie out. This is a well crafted documentary and a important film that should be watched by many viewers. It's one of those movies that keep you thinking about today's economy and society after it's over. I don't want to get too deep into the issue and even if the viewers agree or disagree or somewhat agree and somewhat don't, it will keep the viewers thinking. And it can even be powerful sometimes. Even if the viewers know a lot about the issue that is going on such as "rich getting richer and poor getting poorer". But the way it covers the issues make it leave more of a impact and will probably want to deeply know more about the issues that this movie covers. I personally thought this movie covers the points really well while covering some powerful issues of greed. Especially how people commit crimes against humanity the legal way.
