Excellent topic, good film making, genuine dilemma and truth has been exposed in this documentary. Daring and bold attempt by Michael Moore.

Funny and educational. Michael. Moor is a genius

I would vote for this, but it sucks when you realize that this documentary was highly faked due to cracked.com and other sources...

It really opens the eyes of the viewer."

Bowling For Columbine Bowling For Columbine Product Image

Blaming Marilyn Manson didn't solve anything, did it? Marilyn Manson just sang his music. Eric and Dylan did what they did because they fed each other to do it; they encouraged each other to go through with the massacre.
Marilyn Manson is a highly intelligent and talented musician who represents individualism. He had no part whatsoever in Columbine.
Listen to "The Nobodies" by Marilyn Manson, which he made afterwards regarding the entire situation.

Marilyn Manson isn't a bad person, but he's blamed for so much. He doesn't deserve all the hate he gets. And despite his music, he's very nice and very smart, and his music does have meaning. It's just misunderstood. Personally, I love Marilyn Manson. I have a lot of respect for him.

This represented Marilyn Manson the way he should be. He didn't do anything, and in the end they even found out that the killers didn't even like him.

One of totally the best documentaries of all time, but unfortunately list is missing some essentials. I wouldn't focus on Michael Moore personally. He is good but how to say it, maybe pretentious a bit.

Loved this movie. Very well made and acted!

Hoop Dreams Hoop Dreams Product Image

Forget just documentaries, this is one of the best movies ever! Why this isn't in the top ten I'll never know: it makes a real-life sports story accessible and heartbreaking, and explores life in the ghetto in a way never before attempted.

A touching and thrilling story of 2 boys who just want to play basketball but who are let down and used by all around them Remarkable film. Will have you laughing and crying within minutes of each other.

best 90s movie and possibly movie ever
