# Similar Movies Like Bowling for Columbine
Bowling for Columbine 2002
About: Why do 11,000 folks die in America every year at the hands of gun violence? Talking heads yelling from each TV camera blame everything from Satan to video games. But are we that much various from many another countries? What sets us apart? How have we become both the master and victim of such enormous amounts of violence? This is not a movie about gun control. It is a movie about the fearful heart and soul of the United States, and the 280 million Americans lucky enough to have the right to a constitutionally protected Uzi. From a look at the Columbine High School safety camera tapes to the home of Oscar-winning NRA President Charlton Heston, from a young boy who makes homemade napalm with The Anarchist's Cookbook to the murder of a six-year-old woman by other six-year-old, Bowling for Columbine is a adventure through America, through our past, hoping to explore why our pursuit of happiness is so riddled with violence.
Released: 15 Nov 2002 Director: Michael Moore Writers: Michael Moore Actors: Michael Moore, Salvador Allende, Jacobo Arbenz, Mike Bradley Genres: Documentary, Crime, Drama

Bowling for Columbine Reviews:

`Bowling for Columbine,' is a very thought provoking film.Perhaps the first thought it provokes in any US resident is that the most sensible thing he or she should possibly do is transport forthwith to Canada. It's nearby, they speak English almost indistinguishable from standard American, it feels `lighter over there,' you receive government health care, there are plenty of guns but very tiny killing, and you don't even have to lock your doors.The fundamental question `Bowling for Columbine' asks is: What's responsible for the exceptionally high lvl of killing in America? Not a lot of guns, Moore points out, because another countries have that. Not a violent history, because another countries have that. Not a love of violent movies, video games, and so forth, because another countries love all that too. Not poverty, unemployment, and ethnic diversity, because lots of countries have more poverty and Canada has as much ethnic diversity and more unemployment. Two things, according to Moore, are basic causes: the US media, which, as he shows, fanatics up fear constantly among the American populace; and the government in Washington, which solves everything by bombing folks somewhere. There's a third thing that emerges more subtly: a gun culture, which leads to the absurd notion of self-defense, perpetuating the violence and the fear and the racism. In this the leading force is that strong lobby, the National Rifle Association. The effect of this lethal combination delineated by Moore, particularly since 9/11, is that Americans aren't very satisfied people: they live in a constant state of rage, perturbation, and fear, when they're not disolved in tears for the dead who're falling in the houses and roads and schools of the country on a everyday basis.`Bowling for Columbine' isn't ultimately very cheery or uplifting stuff. True, it has lots of laughs, but most of them are ironic - a tiny sick-making, when you think about it -- and at American expense. Those of us who live in the USA and don't now regard moving to Canada (or somewhere else) as a true option, aren't walking out of this polemical documentary feeling any too cheerful. One may quarrel with Moore's style, though it seems questionable that so many reviewers have expressed disapproval of his private appearance (what's sloppy dressing got to do with it?). One can hardly quarrel with most of Moore's primary facts or the urgency of his topics or his commitment to it. Because of its significance to Americans on both private and national levels, "Bowling for Columbine" has to be considered the most necessary (and it's becoming the most watched) US documentary movie in many a year. This is being recognized in all sorts of ways, first of all with the unique jury prize at Cannes. We shall see what the Academy has to say.It's impressive that Moore and two young boys seriously injured at Columbine were able by their confrontations to shame Wal-Mart into taking handguns and ammunition out of their shops - and Moore appears to have been surprised and impressed by this effect himself.Moore has seemed crude and simplistic and confrontational in the past. His ways have not radically changed, but they've modulated into something subtler and less self-serving, such that he has an ability to talk more easy with potential adversaries -- bank employees giving out rifles with fresh accounts; Michigan militiamen; even Charlton Heston, the haughty President of the National Rifle Association, who invites Moore into his house to movie a conversation. True, Heston ends up walking out of the room after a while, but he doesn't have Moore thrown out. Nor does Wal-Mart. This is significant. One is tempted to call Moore's ways (as he wields them today) not crude and simplistic and confrontational, but direct, simple, and honest. There's something unimposing and Middle American about his overweight slouch and scruffy baseball cap crowned head. If he lives in a house worth close to $2 million in Fresh York now, you can't say it from looking at him, and that consciously maintained persona, if we select to see it thus, aids him in moving through Littleton, Colorado and Windsor, Ontario, and the another territories where he got the footage for this devastating, yet easy film. For credibility among US gun-toters like Heston, Moore has an ace in the hole: he's an expert marksman and a lifetime member of the NRA.Heston walks out because he hasn't nice answers; in fact he really hasn't any answers at all. His explanations for why the USA is so violent are ones Moore has already discounted, and he can't justify his brazenly fronting for the National Rifle Association in Colorado and Michigan right after the kid murders by kids in those two states. Marilyn Manson (the artist accused of complicity at Columbine because the young assassins liked his music) in contrast has not only nice answers, but also the best zinger in the film. When asked what he would have told to the youth at Columbine after the murders, he says: `Not a word. I'd have listened to them. That's what nobody has been doing.' In between saying interviews, Moore has different methods of documenting contexts: an animation, recited stats with images, and astonishing movie clips like the Fifties one of cops admiring how realistic some kids' toy guns are, and the one from a metal-detector company pushing for dress codes in schools, showing a man with baggy pants unloading a entire arsenal. What's laughable are all such solutions that don't even start to receive at the trouble - that are just profiteering from chaos and insecurity.It's encouraging that so many folks are seeing and commenting on this movie. When it was over, I wished the lights would go up and there'd be a discussion group held right there in the auditorium. There was a lot to talk about. Not everything was by any means clear, nor were all the facts to be purchased without question. But in one method or another, `Bowling for Columbine' brings up all the most central problems in America today. Michael Moore makes you laugh and cry; but most important, he makes you think.


Yes Mr. Moore may lean left, and yes he may not be the most objective documentarian.However the facts stand: America has many, many more deaths attributed to guns than any another nation. It's a sad truth.Unfortunately Mr. Moore has been vilified for asking why. And typical of the "head-stuck-in- the-sand" mentality of the far right, they are mad for his work, not at the facts.This film is well done and if you're left, right, in-between, gun nut, or responsible gun owner it is definitely worth viewing.I suspect most of the negative comments posted about this film at IMDB and related websites are by folks who haven't seen the movie. They're just mad at what they perceive the film to be.It isn't a film about gun control. It's a film that merely ask why so many deaths.Enjoy.


Bowling for Columbine is perhaps the most honest and truthful documentary I have seen in a longe time. Michael Moore manages to debunk the myth that Americans are a righteous people. He does this by pointing to numerous references in American history where the government has overthrown regimes in favor of dictators and another militant groups. At the heart of his argument, however, is gun control. Moore poses the question: Why does Canada have a much lower death rate due to gun violence than the United States when Canadians seem to have the same obsession with guns? Moore points out that roughly 12000 deaths occur in America as opposed to the several hundred in Canada.To respond this question, Moore goes to Canada, where he talks to ordinary citizens. As one student remarks, Americans seem to wish to war over everything instead of talk things out. Perhaps, as Moore suggests, there is something wrong with the very framework our country is built upon. An interview with Charleton Heston, the President of the NRA, is shocking. What he answers to Moore's proposed question will astonish many. Overall, it is satisfying that rational and clear-headed individuals such as Moore still exist.
