With love from Michael Moore

Capitalism: A Love Story“Capitalism: A Love Story.”

That, Variety informs us, is the title of Michael Moore’s latest, which you may remember remained nameless even through its own teaser trailer. So, simply by waiting this long, he even turns the choosing of a title into a publicity opportunity. You sort of have to admire the way he plays the game, right down to his cornball blurb:

“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.”

Spooky that I asked yesterday for a documentary to step forward and report for awards season duty, and a mere few hours later we get this. The film bows October 2nd, courtesy of smart indie outfit Overture Films.

    It’s just like a Judd Apatow movie,. Lust, passion, romance and a big fat guy telling funny jokes.

    I’m excited for it I guess. Michael Moore films always entertain me…for one reason or another.

    I hope he adds a segment of the latest case of pure greed,that being the case of former Met and Phillies centerfielder Lenny Dykstra. He just filed chapter 11 claiming a net worth of only 50k after losing 30 million in stock trading and having 20 lawsuits against him as he set himself up as a stock guru. The greed in this country is out of control.
