This review is from: Bowling For Columbine [DVD]  (DVD)
This is a brilliant and thought provoking documentary.
If you have seen any of Michael Moore’s other documentaries or read any of his novels Moore mixes humour with real and depressing issues.
“Bowling for Columbine” does exactly that. The documentary isn’t just about gun culture its about the whole reality of life. Moore raises many issues including the gun culture, but also the race and poverty issues of the United States. He manages to do this by showing archive of the Columbine shootings , George W Bush, (other) right wing politicians and probably more disturbing the archive of the NRA rallies. He also interviews a wide range of people from police officers, the crazy James Nichols, Marilyn Manson and Charlton Heston.
The interview with Heston shows what kind of people these “gun lovers” are.
When asked Why the U.S.A has over 11000 deaths from guns each year Heston makes comments about ethnic groups and says its his right to own a gun because of the “White” discoverers of the U.S.A. There’s so much you can say about “Bowling” so in short, you really have to go and watch it and see for yourselves the legend that is Michael Moore. I cant wait for his next project Fahrenheit 911.
