A new Moore film!
Capitalism: A Love Story premiers tonight and is supposed to hit theaters October 2nd. I'm looking forward to watching this. I'm generally a great fan of Michael Moore's stuff and I really think we need more muckrakers and askers of hard questions. Our recent experiences with the Shrubian misadministration and our current experiences watching Obama, like some half-hearted Don Quixote, failing to face the corporate windmills and create a miniscule change in a collapsing health system have made me increasingly convinced that the American people, like some raging alcoholic, simply haven't quite hit bottom yet and so aren't willing to admit that they've got a problem. Of course, just as alcoholics have a limited time to seek help before their liver and brain turn into silly putty, nations and peoples (or, for that matter, intelligent species) have a limited time to alter their trajectory. I'll be interested in seeing Moore's take on the problem.
