After 20 Years of Filmmaking on US Injustices, Michael Moore Goes to the Source in "Capitalism: A Love Story"
Beginning with the 1989 classic Roger & Me, the Academy Award-winning director Michael Moore says his films “come back to a central core concern: the economic system we have is unfair, unjust and undemocratic.” With his new film, Capitalism: A Love Story, Moore tackles the financial system and the interchanging circles of Washington politicians and corporate managers that run it. Moore says, “I thought I’d cut to the chase and propose we deal with this economic system and restructure it in a way that benefits people and not the wealthiest one percent.” [includes rush transcript–partial]
