Moore to quit documentary filmmaking

No more Michael Moore?

Michael Moore has suggested that his latest foray into documentary Capitalism: A Love Story may be his last.

While at the Toronto Film Festival, Moore explained his frustration at his inability to promote change in public policy through his movies:

“I’ve been having to sort of knock my head against the wall here for 20 years saying these things,” he said.

Referring to previous work on the healthcare system – Sicko – the director explained: “Two years ago, I tried to get the health care debate going, and it did eventually, and now where are we? What am I supposed to do at a certain point?”

The 45-year-old went on to add: “I think making a good movie is about telling a good story, and you can do that through fiction or non-fiction.”
