Bowling For Columbine (2002)

Plot: Documentary based on the consequences that lead to the Columbine High School Massacre in 1999. It also explores the opinions on guns in America and whether they’re causing more damage than good.

Director: Michael Moore

Starring: Michael Moore, Marilyn Manson.

I feel like I should blog about this documentary because the world is still going to shit. There’s still so many gun problems and this documentary highlights it really well. It’s bold and it’s factual and it is a must-see for absolutely everyone and anyone. You will learn a lot and you will feel lots of emotions whilst watching it.

It really gets under the skin of American society. As a British citizen and someone who has never been to America, I found this documentary very enlightening and interesting. To be honest, it’s also kind of put me off going.

I like the way it’s told because it’s based on a really tragic and harrowing event but the documentary has bits of animation that lifts the mood and sometimes will make you laugh. The juxtaposition worked really well for me. One of the best documentaries I have ever seen so I would highly recommend.

Enlightening and sorrowful!
