* ''Film/CapitalismALoveStory'' (2009): This film studies the ongoing recession and, naturally, capitalism itself, particularly regarding the United States. Fittingly/ironically, it failed to recoup its US$20-million budget in its theatrical release.

Added DiffLines:

* ManipulativeEditing: His most frequent criticism. A famous example is in ''Fahrenheit 911'' where he asks a congressman if he would send his son to Iraq. The camera cuts to black implying it was an ArmorPiercingQuestion, but the congressman actually responded that he had a nephew currently serving in Iraq.

* ''Film/TheBigOne'' (1998): Follows Moore on his book tour for the best-seller "Downsize This: Threats From An Unarmed American" as he tours cities where companies are closing down plants and opening factories overseas despite making huge profits. Moore attempts to meet with [=CEOs=] and ask them the reason for their questionable decisions, most notable for Moore's meeting with Nike CEO Phil Knight.[[spoiler: He tries to convince Knight to build a shoe factory in Flint to no avail, though he does succeed in getting him to donate $10,000 to Flint schools (on the condition that Moore matched his donation).]]

* AuthorTract: Moore makes no effort to hide the fact that his documentaries are made to promote his personal agendas, and it would take a staggering lack of perception to be caught off-guard by how overly liberal they are.
* BannedInChina: [[invoked]] PlayedForLaughs (albeit very dark ones) in TheStinger to ''Roger and Me'': "This film cannot be shown within the city of Flint. All the movie theaters have closed."
