A couple months ago, Michael Moore released a short teaser trailer for his new film before it even had a title. Now we know that it’s going to be called Capitalism: A Love Story, and the full trailer has finally arrived online… via CNN?! Well, alright then.
As expected, it shows Moore pestering a lot of people on Wall Street and trying to get to the bottom of this whole economic collapse. I have to say though, even as a fan of Moore’s films, this is looking a bit weak to me. Maybe they just wanted to get across the basic premise in the trailer and deliver a few punchlines without getting overly complicated, but it really looks like there is absolutely nothing to this movie. I might even say I feel dumber having watched it. I’m still interested in the topic and hoping it will at least have enough substance to spark some discussion, but as of right now I’m not quite sold. Capitalism: A Love Story hits select theatres on September 25th; scope out the trailer below and let the predictable Moore bashing begin.
