Capitalism: A Love Story is his [Moore's] most heated and searing film since Fahrenheit 9/11, but not necessarily his best.
December 11, 2009
Michael Moore does it again. He educates and entertains, even if the facts are skewed his way. A great film. Paul Chambers, CNN.
December 6, 2009
Mr. Moore's documentary fluctuates from lucid, cogent arguments, to cartoonish abstractions and conjectures--all the while, his lilting voice massaging our guilt reflex.

It's tragic, funny and informative, as Moore sets his sights on the banking industry ... .
November 6, 2009
in our brave new world of Glenn Beck-style paranoia, anger, and histrionics masquerading as political discourse, Moore's sarcastic mugging seems very nearly quaint
November 5, 2009
Moore is always visually playful and subversive, and even when dealing with such serious and depressing topics entertaining; but he's also game enough to examine America's mythology of prosperity.
November 5, 2009
As usual, Moore is a man who wants answers, which makes for a good documentary. It is a fascinating, albeit terribly lopsided, insight.
November 4, 2009
See Capitalism: A Love Story if you like to hear the sound of Michael Moore railing against 'the man', but if you're after a good documentary there's no love here for you.
November 4, 2009
Moore has long proved himself an excellent editor and comedian, but he always insists on preaching to the like-minded and, thus, can't string together a political film persuasive enough to make a real difference.
November 4, 2009
Capitalism : A Love Story marks a minor return to form for Moore, whose tactical agenda and questionable methods as a documentary filmmaker have dented his standing in recent years.
November 4, 2009
Insisting on simplifications -- poor equals virtuous, rich equals corrupt -- Moore invites distrust to all but the converted.
November 3, 2009
No easy answers here, but that's exactly the point; a big ideas film that hopes to rouse the audience into social change.
November 3, 2009
Capitalism: A Love Story is, like Moore's previous movies, manipulative and moving, funny and impassioned, uplifting and infuriating.
November 3, 2009
Michael Moore has made what may be his magnum opus.
November 1, 2009
Moore has the skill to make very complex material reasonably lucid, some would say simplistic; but it's when he gets silly that he falters.
November 1, 2009
There's nothing too subtle about Moore's filmmaking style, but he does get his points across in a straightforward, uncomplicated way.
October 31, 2009
There's both grit and entertainment value in the film, although if you have seen Moore's other films, you may, like me, feel as though you have seen it all before. It's long, too
October 30, 2009
Both thought-provoking and entertaining.
October 30, 2009
Effective when it exposes the immoral, even 'evil' excesses of an economic system that prizes profit above public welfare; less persuasive when it waxes nostalgic about the factory era of the mid-20th century...
October 26, 2009
Serving as an apogee of Michael Moore's decade-long thesis, "Capitalism" feels like it adds up to a sum greater than this part. If Moore's next decade is as fruitful as his last, America is doomed, but it's odd to see a lack of healthy skepticism.
