Dedadence
This movie takes a hard look at where western society is heading .
Much more serious, in a sense, than Michael Moore, it is narrated pretty well and highly suggestive of the fall of capitalism.
It shows a wide range of ways in which the system dumbs us all down at home and how the third world is brutalized. Various interviews including Noam Chomsky.
Not many answers unfortunately.

I saw Capitalism : A Love Story. Won't watch another MM film. I enjoy his trolling but he's such a hypocrite. The same economic system/government he seems to hate so much is the one that has allowed him to become a multi millionarie through the sale of his movies and books. The documentary wasn't even about capitalism, it was about corporatism.

Trolling! Perfect word to describe MM. I thoroughly enjoyed watching, "Michael Moore Hates America." Great rebuttal flick.

Now, where is my Netflix, gotta go check out Decadence. Sounds good.


Epilogue:
Decadence was not to be found on Netflix. However, I did discover a little doc entitled, "How Beer Saved the World," so I think I'm good now.

The Descendants.
Set in Hawaii, with George Clooney doing a really good job,this movie looks at the weaknesses, strengths, frailty and adjustments of human beings over three generations ,providing sadness along with some sharp humour.
Great sound track too. 4/5.
