Michael Moore's new documentary gets a name

Michael Moore's latest documentary now has a title - and a theme that resonates with recession-weary audiences.

LOS ANGELES —

Michael Moore's latest documentary now has a title - and a theme that resonates with recession-weary audiences.

Moore's look at the consequences of big business will be called "Capitalism: A Love Story." The documentary is due in theaters Oct. 2.

Distributor Overture Films said "Capitalism" examines the disastrous effects of corporate profiteering.

"It will be the perfect date movie," Moore said. "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."

Moore got his start with the 1989 big-business documentary "Roger & Me," his portrait of the economic strife caused by General Motors job losses in his home town of Flint, Mich., and a chronicle of his quest for an audience with GM boss Roger Smith.

The filmmaker scored a $100 million hit with 2004's "Fahrenheit 9/11," which centered on the Bush White House's actions after the Sept. 11 attacks. Moore won an Academy Award for his 2002 gun-control documentary "Bowling for Columbine."
