Untitled Michael Moore doc gets its very own smug title.

Posted on 09 July 2009 by ShepRamsey

That new Michael Moore picture that everyone’s been calling Michael Moore’s New Film or something to that effect, has finally been given a title…and it’s very Michael Moore-y. 

michael-moore-2Moore’s documentary about the downward slope of the economy, accoring to Variety, will be called Capitalism: A Love Story.  Kinda disappointing–it’s all smug and no clever. 

Moore defends the title, however, insisting his movie is “the perfect date movie.”  Moore says, “It’s got it all–lust, passion, romance and 14,000 jobs being eliminated every day. It’s a forbidden love, one that dare not speak its name. Heck, let’s just say it: It’s capitalism.”

Is it just me or can you just hear Moore saying that as if he was standing right next to you? 

Capitalism: A Love Story opens on October 2.  Be there or be one of the many, many people who doesn’t particularly care for Michael Moore.

    He Peaked with Bowling for Columbine. While I tend to agree with most of his politics in “Fahrenheit 911,” it really wasn’t a very convincing or well put together documentary…more interested in punching you in the face than making convincing arguments or exploring an issue.

    Moore is a completely insane individual. He make grandiose statements in his films, but completely fails in regards to stating how he would achieve his lofty goals. If he believes everyone should have medical insurance, I fully expect that that he should be the one that pays for it. Maybe the great O will make a tax just for wealthy pompous over weight film directors.

    Joe, I totally get and agree with most of what you say. I feel like Moore really isn’t a documentary filmmaker…his movies are more filmic editorials. If you agree with them, then you enjoy them. If not, then you don’t. It’s very safe to say he is NOT in any way interested in a balanced argument.

    I’d also argue that he has moved into the realm of being way too pleased with himself and taking himself seriously. Fahrenheit 911 suffered because of that. He was a great editorialist with Roger and Me, but now he just preaches to the choir in some very frustrating ways.
