Michael Moore’s Capitalism: A Love Story Trailer Arrives


Overture Films has released the first trailer for Capitalism: A Love Story, the latest documentary from the king of shock-docs himself, Michael Moore. In his latest work, Moore takes on the United States’ greatest financial crisis since the Great Depression, one that we are still struggling with at this very moment. And as always, he’s doing it with his own special brand of bravado.

Such is the reason why even though I enjoy and can engage with Michael Moore’s movies, I strongly dislike trailers for Michael Moore’s movies. As you can see in the trailer for Capitalism below, much of the substance is stripped away and the trailer becomes a clip reel of Moore’s shock-gags. I have no doubt that his movie will address the issues at hand, but at this point it appears that he’s just trying to perform a citizen’s arrest on the heads of AIG. As with Sicko, his last work, the trailer looks exciting and funny, but it doesn’t even scratch the surface of what Moore is trying to say in his movie. Which may be a good thing, depending on how you look at it.

Alas, I will leave you to formulate your own opinions once you’ve watched the trailer below. Capitalism: A Love Story hits theaters on September 6, 2009.
