Bowling for Columbine (15-May-2002)

Director: Michael Moore

Writer: Michael Moore

Keywords: Documentary, Bowling, School Shooting, Controversial

Left-wing muckraker Michael Moore investigates the United States' history of gun violence.

ABSTRACT
Shaken but not stirred by his previous experiences dealing with General Motors executives and various other enemies of the common man, liberal filmmaker Michael Moore trains his crosshairs on the United States' gun violence epidemic, framing the then-recent shooting at Colorado's Columbine High School as an unfortunate byproduct of his homeland's obsession with guns and the art of pulling a trigger on things. No gun-sympathetic politician nor lobbyist is safe from America's foremost left-leaning provocateur in this Oscar-winning documentary.

Review by anonymous (posted on 25-Jun-2005)

This movie was excellent. It explores the past and present history of gun violence in America. You follow Michael Moore as he tries to discover why America is more violent than other countries. This movie is based around the Columbine High School shootings in 1999. This is a must-see. Very well done.
