Love is in the air. Michael Moore has revealed the title of his new documentary — in which he explores the roots of the economic meltdown — Capitalism: A Love Story.
“It will be the perfect date movie. It’s got it all — lust, passion, romance, and 14,000 jobs eliminated every day. It’s forbidden love, one that dare not speak its name. Heck, let’s just say it: It’s capitalism.”
According to Variety, this love story will focus on “the disastrous impact that corporate dominance and out-of-control profit motives have on the lives of the Americans and citizens of the world.”
The film is set to be released on October 2nd — a year and a day after the U.S. senate approved a $700 billion bailout of Wall Street.
Moore is among one of the most successful documentarist having made three of the op six highest-grossing documentaries of all time — Sicko, Fahrenheit and Bowling for Columbine.
With most of U.S. focusing on the economic meltdown, and people loosing more and more of their jobs each day, it’s no surprise that Moore chose to focus his next documentary on a subject so unpleasantly popular, and this film will probably become another highly successful film in Moore’s list of documentaries.
