Capitalism: A Love Story (2009)

Directed by
Michael Thomas Moore

Michael Moore's timely film looks at the successes and failures of the American capitalist system, where the richest one per cent have more than the bottom 95% combined; a system that claims to reward free enterprise but in fact rewards greed.

He coaxes an explanation of what derivatives are from experts and explains "dead peasant insurance", where companies can take out life insurance on their employees, claim if they die while still working and keep the money. There are also the Moore hallmark moments, using a loudhailer on Wall Street to ask for his money back and cordoning off the Stock Exchange as a crime scene. But beneath the grandstanding is a passionate exposure of the causes of the financial collapse.
