"Bowling for Columbine"
30 mei 2003, 06:58 uur
"Whoa. On behalf of our producers Kathleen Glynn and Michael Donovan from Canada, I'd like to thank the Academy for this. I have invited my fellow documentary nominees on the stage with us, and we would like to they're here in solidarity with me because we like nonfiction. We like nonfiction and we live in fictitious times. We live in the time where we have fictitious election results that elects a fictitious president. We live in a time where we have a man sending us to war for fictitious reasons. Whether it's the fictition of duct tape or fictition of orange alerts we are against this war, Mr. Bush.
Shame on you, Mr. Bush, shame on you.
And any time you got the Pope and the Dixie Chicks against you, your time is up. Thank you very much.
"
(Michael Moore bij de Oscar-uitreikingen)

"Bowling for Columbine"; gisteravond hebben we deze oscarwinnende documentaire van Michael Moore gekeken. Indrukwekkend en beangstigend. Het Amerikaanse gedachtegoed ("A man has te right to defend himself and his family") is -helaas- nog zeer diep doorgedrongen in de manier van denken en leven van vele Amerikanen. Het kan dan ook geen toeval zijn dat ik vanmorgen hier terecht kwam tijdens het surfen.
Prachtige documentaire: niet objectief, wel verhelderend!
Huren! Kijken! Doen!!
