Moore’s Documentary No Longer Untitled

michaelmooreMichael Moore has played his cards pretty close to his vest as to what his new documentary, premiering October 2, will be about. All we have known is that it “will explore the root causes of the global economic meltdown and take a comical look at the corporate and political shenanigans that culminated in what Moore has described as ‘the biggest robbery in the history of this country’ – the massive transfer of U.S. taxpayer money to private financial institutions.”

What we didn’t know was that Moore is actually making a romantic film- Capitalism: A Love Story.

As moore explained to Variety

It will be the perfect date movie. It’s got it all — lust, passion, romance and 14,000 jobs being eliminated every day. It’s a forbidden love, one that dare not speak its name. Heck, let’s just say it: It’s capitalism.

Focusing on “the disastrous impact that corporate dominance and out-of-control profit motives have on the lives of Americans and citizens of the world,” the film will be hitting theaters exactly a year and a day after the Senate voted to approve President Bush’s $700 billion Wall Street bailout. I don’t think this is coincidence.
