An alternately humorous and horrifying documentary about firearms abuse in the United States. Director Michael Moore sets off on a rollicking journey to the heart of the country hoping to discover why the American pursuit of happiness is so riddled with violence. From a look at the Columbine High School security camera tapes to the home of Oscar®-winning NRA President Charlton Heston, from a young man who makes homemade napalm with The Anarchist's Cookbook to the murder of a six-year-old girl by another six-year-old, Bowling for Columbine is a powerful piece of filmmaking that will resonate with audiences dreading -- but expecting -- the next breaking news report about a homegrown assassin with a constitutionally-protected Uzi.
