Bowling For Columbine
Posted On May 1, 2004
Michael Moore directs this documentary about guns and violence in the U.S.
It was better and different than what I expected. I thought it was going to be a gung-ho rant against guns and stuff, but it wasn’t. I didn’t know Michael Moore was a member of the NRA.
I would recommend this movie. It is interesting when he compares the U.S. to Canada and especially people’s perception of the country on the other side of the border (both U.S. and Canadians). His interview with Charleton Heston is scary.
He also uses the song Take the Skinheads Bowling, but it isn’t the Camper Van Beethoven version. Jer had never heard this song when I started singing along to it. Now we have it and he has heard what a lovely song it is thanks to this movie.
