I thought Michael Moore’s health care expose, Sicko, was brilliant (although released a few years too early), and I am looking forward to Capitalism: A Love Story. But I think he’s sort of an idiot positioning the film as anti-capitalist. Capitalism has its problems, but with a title like that and posters like this, no one but fans are going to take him seriously, and everyone else will immediately dismiss him as an actual communist, which I don’t believe he is.
Yes, it gives the film a nice visual style with the “propaganda theme,” but I think it could have been better handled and less alienating. But seriously, Sicko should get another run in theaters now that the health care issue has reached its unsatisfying climax.
