So Bad, It's Not Even Wrong

Michael Shermer on Michael Moore's documentary, Capitalism: A Love Story:

"In this latest installment in his continuing series of what’s wrong with America, Michael Moore takes aim at his biggest target to date, and the result is a disaster. The documentary is not nearly as funny as his previous films, the music selections seem contrived and flat, and the edits and transitions are clumsy, wooden, and not nearly as effective as what we’ve come to expect from the premiere documentarian (Ken Burns notwithstanding) of our time. And, most importantly, the film’s central thesis is so bad that it’s not even wrong."

Read the rest here.

Nice read.
Will someone make serious liberal/capitalist documentary to show people all that's wrong about their view of the economy (and everything)? Most people are too lazy to read a book or to think for themselves, it's easier to download and watch one of the many documentaries like Moore's ones.
Are there some cool documentaries that I'm missing?
