I'm trying to get excited about it, but I know I won't have the money to see it.
HA, oh I won't watch it at a theatre, I will steal it online. That is what all the cool kids do now isn't it?
Of course, the criticism is that he is going to make a ton of money from this documentary. Some of the proceeds are being donated, as usual with his movies. It's amazing how many people dislike him despite the fact that each time he really does stick up for the average person. I love his work, though.
I agree. It's the whole true artists can't be successful because then they're sell outs. It's worse for Michael Moore because he has made a living (and a good one) off railing against corporate greed and corruption. All this said I don't think I have read or seen anything in his work that is anti-success, or anti-money. He is against those that are cheating within the game, not really the game itself.
Micheal Moore has the balls to ask questions of the people who need to answer up! We all should be out there with him, cell cameras in hand and asking our representatives the hard questions. Thank you Micheal, for the monsterous size if your balls, and Joseph for shining the light on them. -that didn't really come out as planned, hummph... Sounded differently in my head. Haha
Hahaha, I see it as my ultimate role in life to shine the spotlight on the size of everyone's balls. It is thankless work.
It wouldn't be if you shined the spot light on MY balls!
hahaha great stuff...loving the comment..And loving the fact that there will be a Michael Moore Movie about 'Capitalism' Thanks for the heads up Joe, just in time for the season of good will & incredible greed, Michael's timing is perfect...Reminds me of an episode of his TV show that was aired in the UK, maybe 10 years ago now so please excuse my appalling memory and possible distortion of the facts but it went something like this...Investigating the tobacco industry and the effect its products have on its customers health, he visited the HQ of Phillip Morris and as it was December he had a choir of carol singers in tow. Wrapped up in woolen scarves and santa hats like it was snowing outside despite the 30 degree heat the choir assembled in the reception around the huge Christmas tree. Micheal explained to the security detail that they just wanted to wish everyone in the building Happy Christmas by singing a few seasonal favorites and could they get the head guys down from their offices on the top floor...Sure enough pretty soon the mass murderers in their $2000 suits were soon gathered around the choir, maybe feeling a little uneasy with the cameras pointed at them BUT the stage was set at which point the singers removed their scarves revealing they were throat cancer patients while at the same time producing electronic voice boxes...Their performance of Silent night was the most memorable I have ever heard...Can't quite remember how it all ended due to huge wave of respect I felt for Michael and the fact he had pulled it off...This guy is the closest we got to a working class hero operating in the heart of darkness, who cares if he makes a few bucks.
Thanks Brian. It's true, he is one of the only guys, aside from maybe Jon Stewart and Colbert (who use satire/comedy) that are willing to go toe to toe with the world's ugliest beasts. The planets worst swine, whichever industry they are in, fear Michael Moore more than they do recessions or tumbling stock portfolios. I can't wait to see Michael Moore once again tear the piss out of capitalism.
