2.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, however info is extremely questionable, September 21, 2003
This review is from: Bowling for Columbine (DVD)
I know I'm gonna get dinged for berating this, but please hear me out. I saw this movie with an open mind and afterwards, I did my research and found too many inconsistancies and falicies in Moore's movie Bowling for Columbine.
First off, he doesn't cite any sources what so ever during the movie, in the credits, or anywhere else for that matter. And in documentaries, you cite sources otherwise your "facts" and "anecdotes" are just another story.
Seccond, I was not impressed with how pushy he was. He came off as a jerk by pressing a mic right in front of Dick Clark's face without an appointment and expected an interview where and when he wanted knowing Clark would have to decline and would be in a hurry.
He also placed [a store] in a PR nightmare and exploiting the survivors of the shooting at Columbine to further his own agenda. I think that is cold hearted and he does it on film! Such [manipulation] and exploitation only made me more sick to my stomache, knowing Moore can go up to anyone, point a mic in front of their face and either make them do what he wants, or face the PR consequences.
Third is his questionable "facts." ... This makes me take off a star because a documentary should have irrefutable facts, or claim them as theory, and since Moore did not state them as theory and his facts have inconsistancies so I'm very skeptical about his work.
However there were some entertaining parts, like his humor. I laughed a few times but it wasn't enough to make me like it. All in all this movie is too questionable to be considered a work of art.
