Filmmaker Davis Guggenheim follows Al Gore on the lecture circuit, as the former presidential candidate campaigns to raise public awareness of the dangers of global warming and calls for immediate action to curb its destructive effects on the environment.
A look at tightrope walker Philippe Petit's daring, but illegal, high-wire routine performed between New York City's World Trade Center's twin towers in 1974, what some consider, "the artistic crime of the century".
Jean François Heckel,
Michael Moore's view on what happened to the United States after September 11; and how the Bush Administration allegedly used the tragic event to push forward its agenda for unjust wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
In 1959, Truman Capote learns of the murder of a Kansas family and decides to write a book about the case. While researching for his novel In Cold Blood, Capote forms a relationship with one of the killers, Perry Smith, who is on death row.

A documentary on the threat that climate change poses to the Earth - it's causes, effects and history and potential solutions to it. Presented by Al Gore through a lecture that he has given to audiences across the globe, plus through more introspective moments.Written by
The comedic cartoon global warming PSA that is shown is from Futurama (1999). Gore's daughter Kristin Gore worked as a writer on that show. Additionally, Billy West, the star of the show, also appears in this film as a voice actor. See more »
All of Al Gore's line graphs and charts start from the very bottom and go straight to the top. Not all line graphs and charts are like that. The Earth changes patterns, so the line charts/graphs should have gone up and down. See more »
You look at that river gently flowing by. You notice the leaves rustling with the wind. You hear the birds; you hear the tree frogs. In the distance you hear a cow. You feel the grass. The mud gives a little bit on the river bank. It's quiet; it's peaceful. And all of a sudden, it's a gear shift inside you. And it's like taking a deep breath and going, "Oh yeah, I forgot about this."

I was disappointed that this movie was not an in-depth study of the science involved in the study of global warming. It seems that 90% of the movie is devoted to telling the viewer about recent climate changes and their effects on the Earth, while only 10% is devoted to explaining why and how these changes have come about.
The movie seems to be directed at a very broad audience who knows practically nothing about global warming or our current climate related problems. If that's you, then go see the movie. But if you are expecting a thorough analysis, you would be better off looking for facts on the web.
