Is Michael Moore Done with Documentaries?

     August 3, 2009


In an interview with the Detroit News Michael Moore, America’s favorite documentarian, hinted that he might be ready to get out of the controversy business.  While speaking about his upcoming October release, “Capitalism: A Love Story”, the director happened to mention that “maybe this will be my last documentary, or maybe for a while.”  What would Michael Moore do if he wasn’t making Congressmen look stupid or ambushing gun nuts?  Hit the jump to find out.

“I have been working on two screenplays over the last couple of years,” Moore told the paper, “One’s a comedy, one’s a mystery, and I really want to do this.”

I suppose that a change was inevitable for the writer/director – though I would have bet on Moore running for the Michigan State Senate before I would have pegged him as a closet mystery writer.  I guess the man just wants to keep things interesting.  It’s the same reason that models want to be sing and pop stars want to act – they have overwhelming confidence when it comes to their own fame.  I personally think Moore is talented enough to pull a straight film off but then again, I am getting comfortable with being really wrong.

“Capitalism: A Love Story” hits theatres on October 2nd.
