Capitalism: A Love Story isn't really bad film, just a disappointing one.
January 23, 2020
[Moore] tends to overplay the usual scenario of rich and powerful versus poor, miserably exploited in this over-long, meandering, often poorly organized film.

Capitalism provides a sobering solution to the system that has disenfranchised so many by making so few filthy rich.

An inspiring message of hope that demands to be noticed and heard, by liberals, conservatives and those who have never given Moore a second thought.

Naturally, Moore also uses the film to promote himself and his view on the world. It's his usual shtick, and occasionally it's too much, but there is no hiding from the fact that it's a fun ride.

Capitalism: A Love Story is a fantastic slap-upside-the-head film, just what we need right now.

Inevitably, this is tricked out with Moore's all-too-familiar stunts... all of them subject to the (capitalist?) law of diminishing returns.

The value of "Capitalism, A Love Story" is not in the moviemaking, it's in the message, and the release that it gives to those struggling right now.

Docu on corporate misdeeds names names, makes mistakes.

As with all of Moore's films, this is really about the fall of The American Dream, with Moore acting as our tour guide into the rotten core of his beloved country. And once again, his heart is in the right place. If only he could keep his ego out of it.

This isn't just about pointing fingers at those who have gotten us into this mess, but about mobilizing working people to stop waiting for someone else to fix it, to stop sitting idly by while their wages, pensions, health care, and homes are stolen.

[Michael Moore] is cheeky, he's outrageous and he can get awfully full of himself... but he does have a way of getting your blood up...

The constant quotations from the Founding Fathers suggest his real concern is a somewhat nebulous betrayal of the American Dream.

Moore continues his career as provocateur with this often eloquent, occasionally muddled, bill of particulars which indicts Wall Street's ethos of greed. As with most of Moore's documentaries, the film is strongest when he's behind the camera, rather than

While Moore still stacks the deck, there are enough scenes portraying callously inhuman policies, such as the death peasant insurance, to pacify the viewer for two overlong hours.

A barbed study of the American economy puts capitalism in the dock but somehow fails to convict.

The thesis that rapacious capitalism has horrific social consequences is credible and well illustrated, if hardly eye-opening to European viewers.
