Vice-President of the United States Al
Gore lost his election bid for president
in 2000 and while the country isn't a
better place after it Gore notoriety is
because since then he's championed a critically
acclaimed film, won the Nobel Piece and
seen his stock get higher than at any
point at during his presidential run.
Inconvenient Truth is the above mentioned
film and it deals with the effects of
global warning on society. This 96 minute
film does a great job of showing how our
future is being hindered by the decisions
we and people in power make today. Gore
does the speaking and demonstrations in
the film while the filmmakers do a great
job of placing pictures throughout the
film that will make the viewer think and
remember. You get to see Al Gore in a
different light in this film.
film is a Laurie David and Lawrence Bender
production and it was produced by Lewis
Guggenheim. Gore does a nice job of putting
his personal experiences into the story
and why he's so passionate about this
cause. A scene I like (and infomation
I dislike) is when Gore talks about U.S.
automakers and how they lag behind in
efficiency of their cars compared to others.
This is especially true when talking about
this a great film but sometimes people
might be overwhelmed with the lingo used
at times.Also there are times when you
wish they interjected with more tips on
what we the people can do to help. Fortunately
at the end of the film their are tips
on how to do your part as the end credits
roll. On the DVD, the special features
include a making of, a awarding winning
songs' video by Melissa Etheridge, seperate
commentaries by the director and producers
and an update with Al Gore. The DVD packaging
is in an environmentally friendly cardboard
give the film 4.5 GeoGlobes.
