Capitalism: A Love Story – Giveaway!

Contest is now closed.

*Congratulations to “The Rat” – winner by random selection.

Thanks to everyone for submitting their questions for Michael Moore. I spoke with him today and tried to get in as many of them as I could, but ran out of time (he’s a popular guy!). He was very nice to chat with. He remarked I was the only person he talked to that day wearing a tie, and commented positively about Canada’s relative financial position versus the US. He also chuckled when I told him my day job was in the financial services… :)

(The interview will appear in the next few days.)

Synopsis of Capitalism: A Love Story

In presenting a “fireball of a movie that might change your life” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone), Moore “skewers both major political parties” (Claudia Puig, USA Today) for selling out the millions of people devastated by loss of homes and jobs to the interests of fat cat capitalists. Moore has “dug up some astonishing dirt” (Brian D. Johnson, Macleans), stories told in the faces of the foreclosed and evicted, in the food stamps received by hungry airline pilots, and in the courage of fired factory workers who refuse to go quietly. But more than a cry of despair, Moore’s film raises the possibility of hope. Capitalism: A Love Story is “The most American of films since the populist cinema of Frank Capra (It’s a Wonderful Life)” (Dan Siegel, Huffington Post ), “a movie that manages shrewdly, even brilliantly, to capitalize on the populist anger that has been sweeping the nation” (Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal).
