Synopsis


Capitalism: A Love Story
Twenty years after his influential debut, Roger & Me, Michael Moore returns to his roots by pulling back the curtain on capitalism to reveal the insidious role it has played in the destruction of the American dream for many people. Back in 1989, auto workers in Flint, MI, were lamenting layoffs and wondering how they would support their families without jobs to pay the bills, or benefits to ensure their health. Flash forward two decades, when cities all across the country are feeling the same pressures that Flint residents were back when GM left them high and dry. With an average of 14,000 U.S. jobs lost every day and taxpayer money constantly being pumped into failing financial institutions, the question must be asked: how long can this go on before the entire system collapses? Is there really any hope for Americans who are losing their homes to foreclosure and seeing their savings get wiped out at an unprecedented rate? In order to seek out an answer to this question and many more, Moore takes a trip to our nation's capitol, engaging average Americans in conversations about the prospect of repairing America's failing, debt-ridden economy along the way. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Michael Moore has always been real when it comes to why the American Dream does not exists anymore. He has provided factual detailed information on the dismantling of the American Dream and why it is so hard to attain. He has always been great about telling the truth and sometimes it is hard to believe.

    Again Michael Moore goes to the streets to present the "other side" of the health-care issue. He also attacks greed and Wall Street and their results as only Michael Moore can do. The best of all his movies by far.

    I feel this documentary nailed it when describing the U.S. economic fiasco. Hopefully, those responsible for the downfall are held accountable.
