The market has spoken

Most documentary filmmakers would kill for Capitalism: A Love Story‘s box office numbers, but Michael Moore and his fans must have been expecting better than eighth place.
Maybe, since capitalism is evil and stuff, people didn’t feel guilty about downloading it?

  1. Relax, it’s just a slow starter that will gain popularity when Moore is awarded the Nobel Peace AND Economics Prizes. After the Gargantuan Crash, it will become a cult movie.

  2. Michael Moore has an inability to distinguish the difference between corporatism and capitalism. At this point, even suggesting it’s an “inability” it a crutch to mister Moore. He purposely puts out misinformation to lead the public off the trial of the federal reserve and a statism, and perpetuates the paradigm of “left vs right.”
    Wake up!
    Moore is calculating, not naive.
    This reminds me, he’s featured in a news snippet in this game, 2011: Obama’s Coup Fails. I think I read that he ate himself to death. It’s a fun political satire: http://www.usofearth.com/2011-obamas-coup-fails.php

  3. “Well, I don’t agree with the copyright laws and I don’t have a problem with people downloading the movie and sharing it with people. As long they’re not doing it to make a profit off it, as long as they’re not, you know, trying to make a profit off my labor. I would oppose that. But um, you know I do quite well and I um…I don’t know, I make these books and movies and TV shows because I want things to change, so the more people that get to see them the better, and um, so I’m, I’m happy when that happens, OK? Should I not be happy I don’t know? It’s like if a friend of yours has the DVD of my movie, gave it to you to watch one night, is that person doing something wrong? I’m not seeing any money from that. But he’s just handing the DVD to you so that you can watch my movie. A DVD that he bought, but you’re not buying it, yet you’re watching it without paying me any money. See I think that’s OK, and it’s always been OK, we share things with people. And I think information and art, ideas should be shared.” — Micahel Moore, 2004 http://www.moorewatch.com/index.php/weblog/comments/more_about_moore_on_downloading_the_movie/
