Michael Moore loves title of latest doc

'Capitalism: A Love Story' to debut in the U.S. on Oct. 2

Michael Moore is in love.

The provocateur director has named his new film -- in which he explores the roots and culprits of the economic collapse -- "Capitalism: A Love Story."

Moore quipped in a statement that romance was the appropriate theme for a film about financial woe.

"It will be the perfect date movie. It's got it all -- lust, passion, romance, and 14,000 jobs being eliminated every day," he said, adding "It's a forbidden love, one that dare not speak its name. Heck, let's just say it: It's capitalism."

Moore has a history of providing pithy, even oblique titles to his films. He of course called his movie about the greed of the auto industry "Roger & Me," and named his investigation into George W. Bush foreign policy "Fahrenheit 911."

Overture and Paramount Vantage will release "Love Story" domestically and internationally, respectively, with the movie coming out in the U.S. on Oct. 2.
