CRITIC'S PICK

'Capitalism: A Love Story'

October 08, 2009|Betsy Sharkey

Although you might feel a need to duck and run for cover, it's still worth seeing Michael Moore's new documentary, "Capitalism: A Love Story." As he is wont to do, Moore takes on the big guys responsible for the country's current financial ills, at one point putting up yellow crime scene tape around Wall Street. This time, though, he's after the little guys too, as he makes his case for the ways in which our desire to join the ranks of the rich is the real problem. It's never easy to argue for more taxes, though he tries, and it does leave you wondering about Moore's own wealth, which "Capitalism" will no doubt increase. But it is also Moore at his most passionate, most personal and most political, and that is something not to be missed.
