Capitalism: A Love Story (Documentary)
Director: Michael Moore

Moore is the king of the advocacy documentary, and he has influenced a whole generation of film makers.  I have always had my reservations about his methods, although I support his causes and opinions.
For one, there is too much egomania in his films.  Okay, not that bad as these things go.  And, in Sicko, he kept this to a minimum to the benefit of the film and the cause.
But, he has also been guilty of stacking the deck and of pouring his scorn on low-level employees, many of whom are in the union jobs he claims to care so much about.
