Bowling for Columbine is the first Michael Moore film that flirts with true greatness. It's two hours that seems like one hour, a funny, sad, shocking documentary satirizing...what? The NRA? Violence? American paranoia? Local news? Well, sort of, but it's far too complex to be wrapped up so easily. It's the first of his movies in which Moore actually seems to examine his own hangups, and seriously comes down hard on himself--as well as on Charlton Heston, Dubya, Wal-Mart, the powers that be in Flint, Michigan, and lots of other stuff. This is--so far--Moore's masterpiece and one of the best films of the year by far.
