Variety reports that Michael Moore has announced the title for his latest documentary. His skewering of the U.S. financial system will be called Capitalism: A Love Story. Is it just me or is Moore becoming increasingly sarcastic? He always has used a lot of over-the-top sarcasm to make his point, which has been used for great comic effect. However, in my opinion, it’s becoming a bit excessive to the point where it’s almost a little annoying.
Anyway, the new title is admittedly pretty great. It promises lots and lots of sarcasm…
Here is what Moore said at the press release:
“It will be the perfect date movie,” Moore said in an announcement Wednesday. “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.”
“Be a hero and help me expose the biggest swindle in American history,” Moore said at the time.
Capitalism: A Love Story will be released in the U.S. on October 2nd, 2009.
