Product Description

Bowling For Columbine

Customer Reviews

Top Customer Reviews

Format: DVD
I have seen this film three times in theatres and will be buying the widescreen DVD.
This film is not pro or anti guns. Instead this film looks at the reasons why America uses guns to kill each other with a frequency unmatched anywhere else in the world.
This film is not anti-NRA, Moore actually supports the NRA's mission of teaching gun safety and responsible gun ownership. This film does leave the viewer horrified at the NRA's repeated decision to roll NRA President Heston out to any community grieving after a senseless gun tradgedy to intone his famous line, "From my cold dead hands" as he holds a long weapon aloft.
Moore asks the viewer to consider possible root causes for the extraordinary degree of gun violence, and suggests that America has developed a culture of fear (and violence) that lends itself to the overly quick reaching for a gun.
I grew up hunting deer and pigs, owned several rifles, and support the second ammendment and the less malignant actions of the NRA.
That said, I think the second ammendment was written over 200 years ago and perhaps should itself be ammended. Further, I can not condone the reprehensibly insensitive and agressively pain inducing actions of the NRA and Heston.
I most strongly recommend this movie to everyone; I bought tickets for my friends so they could see this amazing film in the theatres.

This is one of the most thoughtful movies I have ever seen. For all those that blither on about gun control - you have missed the whole point of the movie.
Moore tries to understand what is at the root of our Country's level of violence. He concludes Gun Ownership, itself, is NOT!
First off, go to the World Health Organization and look up "homicide rates United States" and the second article shows -

"Homicide rates for Japan, the United States and Brazil are respectively 0.6, 7 and 25 per 100 000 population. Firearm death rates in Asia are almost 100 times lower than in the Americas. 'We need to learn from these cross-cultural differences. Such insight could help in prevention and response,' added Dr Krug"
Moore unravels a fascinating thread which reveals America's morbid fascination with fear. He presents his theory of where this fear originated. How it is fueled by mistrust, the media, intolerance, ignorance, greed, and public policy.
Some of his statistics are presented without much detailed explaination (ie Per Captia) making them more sensational than useful but overall he will stun you with his observations of what is causing us to fear each other and so willing to react with violence whereas very similar people with roughly the same set of conditions (our Canadian neighbors) do not.
Yes, the NRA, and Charleton Heston are made to look bad. But if your daughter or son, friend, relative, had been killed by soemone using firearms and you saw Heston touting the NRA in the neighborhood (Columbine, Flint MI) a few days later wouldn't you be outraged too? Moore, who is a member of the NRA and an avid gun owner, sure was.

I believe the reviewer from NZ missed the message behind this film. The main message is not about guns at all, Moore is trying to show that the cause behind a lot of what's wrong with the US is the 'culture of fear'. He just uses the events at Columbine and Oklahoma City as a stage to illustrate his argument. This message is best conveyed during the interesting clip with Marylin Manson.
The film is thoroughly amusing, and dismally frightening at the same time.

This is an incredible and powerful movie - one that many reviewers missed the point of entirely. For example the idiot who blames violence on ethnic minorities, which Michael Moore addressed in regards to Canada, something our hateful friend forgot to mention, which has a significant minority population and still significantly lower crime rates. It examines the origins and nature of our violent society, and was much more anti-violence than anti-gun. I never even got the impression he wanted guns banned, he showed that guns in places like Canada don't cause the same level of violence, he just wants people to THINK about how our society ended up being so full of fear, hate and violence. This is a must-see movie if you ever truly thought about issues like gun control and more importantly if you haven't. I have never liked guns and always advocated for stricter control, but after seeing this movie, and thinking about the issues he pointed out it is easy to see that our culture, not our guns, are what really puts us in danger from each other. I still think guns should be at least as controlled as a car, but I no longer think that it would solve half as many problems. See the movie, listen to the message and think about it!

There is a long, repetitive diatribe a couple reviews up in which the reviewer gets on Moore's case for his biased portrayal of the subjects of this movie. I think that reviewer is missing the point. Gun control is not the main thrust of the movie, it's that Americans seem to have a great deal more fear than citizens of other countries. The fact that people shoot criminals is not a rebuttal of that argument, in fact it's more proof. The reviewer states that there is less violent crime in states where people are allowed to carry concealed weapons, a solution which boils down to "make criminals afraid as well". Anecdotal or not, the evidence presented fits Moore's hypothesis that fear drives much of the violence in this country. A reading of Chomsky's "Manufacturing Consent" (which I'm sure Moore must have drawn from) should further convince you of the media's role in forming public opinion, and in this case fear.
In my personal experience as a Canadian living in the U.S. I find that there is a big difference between the two countries, and that is the difference between capitalism and socialism. Capitalism can be summed up as "every man for himself", while socialism is based on spreading wealth to those who need it. One engenders competition, the other cooperation. In America you take what you can get because no one is going to hand anything to you, so naturally you're going to protect what you already have a little more vigorously. That difference goes a long way to explaining why Americans are more afraid, and why they feel the need to own guns. In any event, I grew up without locking my door, although I sure lock it now.
Whatever your politics you can't deny that Moore documents a great deal of absurd and dysfunctional behavior in this movie.
