Bowling for Columbine Reviews

November 5, 2007
It's both powerful and infuriating, brilliant and facile, hilarious and horrific, witty and demagogic. It's a great movie to argue about.

All in all, Mr. Moore has given us a lot to think about in Bowling for Columbine, and he has entertained us royally in the process.

Fascinating, thought-provoking, often fitfully funny and sometimes devastatingly sad.

A worthy successor to Roger & Me.

A sweeping, sometimes insightful and often funny look at America's culture of violence.

Bowling for Columbine would never be mistaken for even-handed, but it is at least a sincere attempt to find the source of this country's inability to curb gun violence and murder.

By turns hilarious, infuriating, moving, manipulative, self-serving and, most importantly, absolutely required viewing.

[Moore's] better at fingering problems than finding solutions. But though he only scratches the surface, at least he provides a strong itch to explore more.

There is simply no doubt that this film asks the right questions at the right time in the history of our country.

At its best, which occurs often, Michael Moore's Bowling for Columbine rekindles the muckraking, soul-searching spirit of the 'Are we a sick society?' journalism of the 1960s.
