Just saw "Bowling for Columbine," and I guess I'd be interested to hear specifically why Quietude's friend liked this documentary so much.

I saw the film in the local cinema arts theater, which is next to the university campus, so for this audience, Moore was preaching to the choir. I'd like to see NRA supporters and those who think that Heston is, indeed, God, attend in droves, laugh for the first 10 minutes, then find their hearts thumping at the causal analyses Moore sets up, popcorn suspended between the bag and the mouth. When he moves shot-by-shot from Iran to Korea to Vietnam to El Salvador to Panama to Iraq to the airliners crashing into the WTC, there's no breathing.
