It's a screening log, no more no less. Maybe I'll have something interesting to say one of these days...

A Horror Movie.

An Inconvenient Truth (Guggenheim, 2006)

The new documentary of Al Gore's campaign against global warming is as frightening a film ever made. Though it perhaps is overplayed in the hagiography of Gore, when it focuses on the lectures it is compelling and terrifying. The crowd a saw it with gasped at several key moments throughout the film, and I believe it has the power to sway people toward understanding of global warming.

The force of the film comes in refuting the claims against global warming and the feeling that Gore genuinely wishes to change the world for the better. He is in fact quite charming by doing a great job of accepting his own nature, that of a college professor, and simply stating things he feels with a passion. It is a wonderful performance, and one that makes you hope he runs for President in '08. After this film, I wouldn't hesitate to vote for him.
