Moore — “the most feared filmmaker in America” — is up to his same old schtick. This time capitalism is in the bull’s eye.
I don’t always agree with him, but I am always entertained by him. This target is ripe; the film looks to be particularly engaging:
“It’s a crime story. But it’s also a war story about class warfare. And a vampire movie, with the upper 1 percent feeding off the rest of us. And, of course, it’s also a love story. Only it’s about an abusive relationship.
“It’s not about an individual, like Roger Smith, or a corporation, or even an issue, like health care. This is the big enchilada. This is about the thing that dominates all our lives — the economy. I made this movie as if it was going to be the last movie I was allowed to make.
“It’s a comedy.” — Michael Moore
