Michael Moore’s “Capitalism: A Love Story” seeks to bring the Wall Street executives who screwed the pooch to justice by asking them rhetorical questions and making them look like buffoons. Moore is also going after the government (a first for Moore, who usually stays far away from politics), who he feels was complicit in setting the country up for disaster. As we’ve seen from the trailer, Moore attempts to get the bailout money back (literally by asking for it in big, cartoonish dollar sign bags) to show his anger and disgust at everything that’s wrong with the American financial system. Well the bags are back, this time showing up in the poster for the film, which you can find after the jump.
The poster is of Moore (so you know you’re watching a Michael Moore film), looking schlumpy as always, folding his arms as if to say “You’ve messed with the wrong man who literally has no power to hold you accountable for your actions”, while a congressman waves an American flag while holding a sack of money behind his back. That sneaky bastard. I hope you’re as angry as I was back in 2008.
