It is true that there have been a great deal of films with a leftist bent in recent times, not including Michael Moore's documentary film Capitalism: A Love Story. It is indeed true that the recent film Surrogates has an anti-capitalist and consumerist message, as do other great films like V for Vendetta and Revolutionary Road.

Brilliant satire of David Walsh.
