Michael Moore names new recession-themed doc

Michael Moore has announced the title of his upcoming recession-themed doc. Taking its cue from the torrid love stories of cinema past, Capitalism: A Love Story will premiere in the U.S. on Oct. 2. 'It will be the perfect date movie,' said the filmmaker in a statement. 'It's got it all - lust, passion, romance and 14,000 jobs being eliminated every day. It's a forbidden love, one that dare not speak its name. Heck, let's just say it: it's capitalism.' The film's U.S. release falls a year and a day after the U.S. government announced its Wall Street bailout. Overture Films will release the project domestically, with Paramount Vintage handling international distribution.
