Michael Moore takes on Wall Street.
I can’t understand why we’ve had to wait several months since the US release for this new Michael Moore documentary to be shown here – the relevance was even greater earlier at that time. The film’s subject matter, if it’s not too obvious to need spelling out, is the financial collapse of the last year or so, and Moore’s target, as always, are the rich and greedy who profit from everyone else. (The richest 1% of Americans own more than the poorest 95%). Being Michael Moore, he goes round creating camera-worthy events like putting police crime scene tape around the Stock Exchange and haranguing AIG through a loudhailer. He also talks to ordinary people about the impact of what happened. It needs to be seen.
