Rick Fielding BS: RE-visiting 'Bowling for Columbine' (118* d) BS: RE-visiting 'Bowling for Columbine' 22 Sep 03


I know we discussed this before, but because of the volatile nature of it, I decided to wait before renting it. Truthfully I found it milder than I expected and I DIDN'T think that Michael Moore ambushed Chuck Heston. When he let him in the house, Heston acknowledged that he knew Moore AS A FILM MAKER, meaning he would have been aware of "Roger and Me"....so Moore's take on guns would not have come as a surprise. I simply think Heston got tired of arguing. (s'pecially since he was getting all his "countries' gun stats" info wrong)

As to whether we Canadians don't lock our doors.......well.......sometimes. Yes, Michael IS manipulative and there's a lot of editing in the film, but Bravo to him. How the Hell did he get it released? Did K-Mart actually follow up with it's promise to sell no more ammo?

Cheers

Rick
