Bowling for Columbine film review

Year: 2002

Why is America so violent?

In Micheal Moore’s recent best selling book, "Stupid White Men," he raises this question to a pre-911 America and finds fault with the greedy, unscrupulous white men who run the government and corporate America. In his post 911 documentary he takes further aim at their children, in particular the "stupid white boys" of Columbine High. For casual voters who prefer their politics be dramatized, Micheal Moore’s funny, subjective journalistic style may ring true. But for serious moviegoers who expect journalists to strive for objectivity, the barrage of allegations leveled towards the American government and way of life will seem like a leftist, cinematic drive by; intent on terrorizing a complacent citizenry.
