With the semester closing to the end, we are shifting gears towards our final paper. With that in mind our class is beginning our preparations. First thing we did was view a documentary in class called Captialism: A Love Story. The film was very captivating and at times shocking. Director and writer Michael Moore is no stranger to evasive and thought provoking film making, as his reputation as a sociopolitical documentation is well known. His other films Bowling for Columbine, and Fahrenheit 9/11 are both in the similar vein as the film we viewed in class. The film itself revolves around the topic of capitalism, and first hand stories about people who have been harmed by it. After viewing the film, it makes me more aware and educated about the economical state of society and the role big business and the government ultimately has. I will make sure to use the film as a trusted resource in my final paper.
