Michael Moore's 'Capitalism: A Love Story' up for top Venice Film Fest prize

Michael Moore’s latest documentary about the credit crisis, Capitalism: A Love Story, will compete for the top prize at this year’s Venice Film Festival, according to Reuters. Capitalism is one of six U.S. films to compete in the top category. Other notable American films up for the Golden Lion are Werner Herzog’s remake of Bad Lieutenant starring Nicolas Cage and Eva Mendes; former Gucci designer Tom Ford’s A Single Man, which features Colin Firth and Julianne Moore; John Hillcoat’s adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s post-apocalyptic novel The Road, which stars Viggo Mortensen and Charlize Theron; Todd Solondz’s Life During Wartime; and George Romero’s Survival of the Dead. The festival takes place Sept. 2-12 in Venice, Italy.

    Someone should make an actual documentary about how all of Michael Moore’s films are completely BIASED and should NOT be considered documentaries. “Capitalism: A Love Story”? Are you kidding? That’s the lamest title I’ve ever seen. Granted I have no sympathy for the greed on Wall Street that sent into the downward economic spiral but “Capitalism” is hardly the problem.

    BINGO! And there, from TJ, is the reason why capitalism will continue to rob the poorest to pay the richest even more. Biased you say? And tell me, what isn’t? The TV news? If more started to actually have an opinion, rather than being scared of being accused of being ‘biased’ or ‘having an agenda’, then the Wall Street thieves you say you have no sympathy for would have been shown up for what they are a long time ago.
