“An Inconvenient Truth”
An Inconvenient Truth about who… the planet? or Gore?
Seriously… Thank goodness the documentary format is reaching mass audiences. This is a highly informative presentation piece that should really be required viewing, while moderator and recent Nobel Prize Nominee Al Gore demonstrates a welcomed charisma. However, the lecture is oddly inter-cut with artsy segments exploring Mr. Gore’s personal battles in life, which leads the doc in a more political direction, and can actually defeat its own purpose by turning away the conservative base and preaching to its own choir instead. Why haven’t liberals learned to make a bi-partisan film yet? Then they might be taken seriously. Nevertheless, the point is clear… Manwithavan may soon be Manwithabike. Great movie.
