Worst 'Columbine' Part
6 August 2004 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This 'Brief History' must be the worst part of the documentary by Michael Moore, 'Bowing For Columbine'. While the documentary itself was, to say the least, unfocused at times and not that truthful (though it had it's moments as well), 'Brief History' is a completely one-sided history lesson which doesn't make much sense.

It main idea (to support those in 'Columbine') is that white American men have always lived in fear. It's fear what made them kill the indians, it's fear that led them to slavery, it's fear nowadays that lead them to buying guns.

What troubles me most is that this theory isn't much supported by fact. In truth, the only fact we get from Moore is that the NRA started out the same year the KKK was banned as illegal. So?

So indeed. If you are watching 'Bowling' you might as well skip this part, as it is silly to the extend and not making any sense.

2/10.
