Product Description

Product Description

Political activist/antagonist Michael Moore's trio of films critically examining aspects of American life. In 'Bowling For Columbine' (2002), takes a 'bemused and bitter' look at the gun laws in the US. The title springs from two fatal shootings in the town of Columbine: the first and most notorious being the mass shooting of pupils at Columbine High by two of its pupils in 1999; and the second being another fatal shooting two years later at the bowling alley of the town (which the two students had attended before they went on their killing spree in 1999). Hence the title. Moore confronts supermarket chains, the media and even pro-gun lobbyist and actor Charlton Heston (as President of the National Rifle Association). In 'Fahrenheit 9/11' (2004), Moore focuses on the administration of George W. Bush and his 'War on Terrorism' agenda. The film explores the government's handling of the terrorist attacks on September 11th 2001, explores the dubious relationship between both Bush administrations and the bin Laden family, questions the possible role of Saudi Arabia in the attacks, and looks at the fallout of the tragedy and subsequent events from a personal angle through the testimony of Lila Lipscomb, a Michigan woman whose son was killed in Iraq. Finally, In 'Sicko' (2007), Moore examines the US health care system. Moore attempts to highlight the contradictions in a system that, despite costing more per person than any other in the world, ranks last among developed countries. As well as taking a swipe at the wholly for-profit health insurance and pharmaceutical industries, Moore compares and contrasts health provision around the globe, including Canada, Britain and France.

This suite of dvds presents an informative and alternative view of America's morals with respect to gun law, health and sickness and 9/11. The research is well presented and not a little thought provoking.

A very good insight into the less than attractive side of America especially with regards the health care aspects and 9/11.

When is someone going to do this for UK PLC?

Revealing documentary and an eloquent indictment of the US Health Care system which does not CARE for millions of Americans or residents with no means to buy medical coverage and who in some cases have to pay several times the price paid in Europe for some live saving drugs or hospital treatment.

The richest country in the world with hundreds of billionaires and thousands of millionaires (many particulary on Wall Street enriching themselves whilst impoverishing other Americans see what happened to Lehman Brothers employees) where universal health care which includes everyone irrespective of income, race or age , as it exists in civilized Europe, is still a far away dream!

Thank you Michael for another eye opener on what is wrong in this once great country called the United States of America where imperial domination abroad and criminal greed at home marketed through phony propaganda have become the order of the day .

Bowling for Columbine was the first Michael Moore film I had seen. I thought he did a good job, stopping the open sale of bullets, and pursuing Charlton Heston. Sicko applied to the NHS as well as the USA, so it will probably get results in the UK. I haven't watched Fahrenheit 9/11 yet.

Michael Moore should be awarded the freedom of the world! He pulles no punches and exposed the hypocrisy and self interest inherent in the political structure and the absurdities of the way our society is run. 10 out of 10 Mr Moore

Having really enjoyed watching Fahrenheit 9/11 years ago and how it shows that politicians the world over are as bent as one another.Even though Bowling for Columbine was made in 2002,its still relevent today.It certainly makes you think how many more tragedies like this will happen before they do something about the gun laws in America.It certainly changed my opinion of Charton Heston, who condone's holding gun rallies in the same town in the same week as all these massare's took place.
Sicko is a brilliant film about the American health care system.Having watched it ,i will never complain about the N.H.S ever again.For such a civilized country it is truly shocking how they treat their sick people.
