I love it
13 May 2010 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is the short animated sequence of Bowling for Columbine, with a running time of 3 minutes. You probably already know of Moore's agenda and his often manipulative documentaries, and this is a pretty strong example of that. What I usually say is that you should hear him out, then look it up for yourself, because for as much of it as you cannot and should not take at face value, he does have well-thought out and vital arguments, that he presents in a compelling manner, every so often, and I consider those worth the effort to not let yourself get carried away. This is about racism, as several of his features are, and yes, it is lacking in nuance. Still, what he says about fear as the motivator of atrocities in the US is something that ought to be considered. This keeps to a swift pace throughout, without overwhelming the audience. The comedy is largely a quite sarcastic brand of black humor, and I gotta admit, I find it to be hilarious, and I suspect many would. Not entirely factually correct, but an entertaining and good summary of America's history. There is plenty of disturbing content and a bit of relatively violent material in this. I recommend this to anyone smart enough to not believe it with no reservations. 8/10
