Moore wants movie screening for Madoff
Moviemaker Michael Moore is aiming to screen his new documentary Capitalism: A Love Story in a bizarre place - Wall Street fraudster Bernard Madoff's prison.
The controversial documentary maker is launching his latest venture - a scathing critique of the New York financial district, in which he lays bare capitalist greed amongst U.S. bankers.
And there is one particular financier Moore would love to organise a special showing for - the man who siphoned billions of dollars from his rich clients, including Kevin Bacon, Kyra Sedgwick, John Malkovich and Zsa Zsa Gabor.
Moore tells the New York Daily News, "Bernie (Madoff) is representative of the scheme of capitalism itself.
"We're just trying to see if we can set that up in the prison he's in. If we can't, we've discussed doing an outdoor screening in the field, so at least he can watch through the bars of the window."
Madoff is currently serving a 150 year stretch for fraud at Butner Federal Correctional Complex, North Carolina.
