Movie Review: Bowling for Columbine

2003-02-01 21:31:38+00 by ebradway 3 comments

Just caught Bowling for Columbine at the Bijou in the AEC Independent Film Series. This is Micheal Moore's latest documentary. He's managed to surpass all of his other works to a significant degree. While there was plenty of his traditional harrassment, like taking a couple of the Columbine victims to K-Mart's headquarters to try to 'return' the bullets still embedded in their bodies (the bullets were purchased at the Littleton K-Mart store), the focus of the movie was much broader and didn't seem to simply beat a single political issue to death. One thing is for sure, the movie makes me want to move to Toronto with Barry!

Still haven't made it to the show but plan on hitting it this week. I always enjoy Moore for his "makin' ya think" approach. I don't agree with him much of the time...but presenting the things he does with humour...really make's ya think. Have heard from others that "Bowling" was excellant. Just finished his book "Stupid White Men" and would recommend it as well...

It's been on my Netflix list for month and I take great comfort knowing it will show up in my mail box when available.....No I am not working for Netflix.

Got off my ass last night and went to see it...WOW! Deffinitly a different Michael Moore experience. Was one of the best "thinkin'" films I've seen in a long time. very powerful...and it's always good to see Matt Stone & Marilyn Manson as the voices of reason <grin>
