New Orleans Times-Picayune

By Mike Scott
After watching the bailouts, the bank foreclosures and the Bernie Madoffs of the world dominate headlines, Michael Moore is mad as hell, and he's going to try to make you mad as hell, too.

No matter where you stand, there's no denying "Capitalism" is flat-out polemic wizardry.

Wall Street Journal

By Joe Morgenstern

By Wesley Morris
Redundant for a filmmaker whose work has always dealt with the dismaying consequences of this country’s profit motive. Isn’t every Michael Moore film ultimately about capitalism? This one just has a more facetious title.
