Michael Moore takes America’s gun control subject head on his latest film, Bowling for Columbine. Moore focuses on the circumstances surrounding the Columbine High School massacre in 1999, and asks one simply question: Why do 11,000 people die in America each year at the hands of gun violence? A statistic that is higher than any other democratic nation in the world.
The film delves into what sets America apart from other nations and how they have become both the master and victim of such vast amounts of violence. It is a film about the fearful heart and soul of the United States, and the 280 million Americans lucky enough to have the right to a constitutionally protected Uzi.
