Michael Moore's next doco: The GFC

by BN10 Jul 2009

The global financial crisis will be the subject of celebrated filmmaker Michael Moore's next controversial documentary.

Having previously tackled America's gun laws in 'Bowling for Columbine', the Bush administration's response to September 11 in 'Fahrenheit 9/11', and the US public health service in "Sicko" Moore has now focused his investigative attentions on the GFC.

'Capitalism: A Love Story'  will be released in the US on 2 October, a year and a day after the US Senate voted to approve a US$700bn bailout of Wall Street.

In a statement, Moore said: "It's a forbidden love, one that dare not speak its name. Heck, let's just say it: It's capitalism,"

Moore has made three of the top six highest-earning documentaries. He won an Academy Award in 2002 for best documentary for 'Bowling for Columbine' and also received an Oscar nomination for 'Sicko'.
 
Fahrenheit 9/11 was the first documentary to make US$100m at the North American box office.

    I wonder if he will really go into the detail? US Fed, Goldman Sachs and Geitner, Banking kabal, Obama and his links to the Wall Street Oligarchy, True cost of the dirivative bubble, Whitehouse policy in lending leading to the GFC.....there is a lot of stuff and a lot of people who are directly at fault...very high up too. Let's just hope he tells the truth this time and doesn't gloss over it like Fahrenheit 911.
