Thread Name: BS: RE-visiting 'Bowling for Columbine'
Subject: RE: BS: RE-visiting 'Bowling for Columbine'
I read the critique. I would say that the guy underestimates Moore and overestimates himself. His only valid point is that Moore edited speeches and such to reinforce his points. Here's some NEWS David, that's what filmakers do for a living. It isn't Moore's job to supply us with the raw footage.
FACT: the film is in the public eye and popular. FACT: Lockheed Martin and Charlton Heston and the NRA would win quite a bit of money in court if they can prove that Moore lied.
Fact: Documentary Filmakers voted to give Mr. Moore that oscar
Fact: those film makers know a lot more about Filmaking than David T. Hardy.
