Title in Japan: キャピタリズム マネーは踊る
Director: Michael Moore

Country: USA
Running Time: 120 min

“I refuse to live in a country like this,” says Michael Moore in his most impassioned op-ed rave since 1989’s Roger and Me, “And I’m not leaving.” Here he posits that capitalism in its current form allows big business to collude with both red and blue politicians to screw the middle class. This is not a conspiratorial position; it’s even widely shared. He just explains it more entertainingly. Love or hate Moore, he’s not trying to settle arguments, but to start them and get people to ask questions. The trademark grandstanding is kept to a minimum, mostly for the trailers. Well worth seeing.
