Documentary Watch: September Theatrical Releases
Wednesday September 2, 2009
Most highly anticipated among September’s theatrical releases is Michael Moore‘s latest documentary, Capitalism: A Love Story, which opens in select cities on September 23, distributed by Overture Films. As the title indicated, the documentary is Moore’s unique take on why our economy is failing, a subject recently covered in several documentaries, including the acclaimed I.O.U.S.A..
The failing economy is also targeted in American Casino, which opens in select theaters on September 4, distributed by Argot Pictures. In the documentary, filmmaker Leslie Cockburn shows how Wall Street gambled with their client’s investments — and lost.
