|Bowling for Columbine is absolutly brilliant, I will go again with anyone asap....
from michael moore's site:
Saw a matinee yesterday. Excellent. I liked some of the connections Moore made. The montage of news announcers saying "the suspect is a black male" followed by clips about the dangers of "africanized" killer bees. Marilyn Manson's riff on the link between fear and consumption. The statement "Osama bin Laden used his CIA training to kill 3000 people." The New York Times film reviewer really tut-tutted over that, calling it "idiotic." Sorry, O voice of mainstream normalcy, but it's true, isn't it? By training, then coldly abandoning, its mujahadeen "assets" after the Cold War the government pretty much guaranteed they'd morph into crack terrorist outfits, and come gunning for us. It's sickening that criticizing the government and the corporations who own it is still characterized as "hating America." One thing I can't get too upset about is all the gun nuts and militiamen out West. They only really hated the government when Democrats were in charge. Now that one of their own (so they think) is running the country they're much quieter.
we saw it a few days ago...really really great
