Story: Political activist/antagonist Michael Moore's trio of films critically examining aspects of American life. In 'Bowling For Columbine' (2002), takes a 'bemused and bitter' look at the gun laws in the US. The title springs from two fatal shootings in the town of Columbine: the first and most notorious being the mass shooting of pupils at Columbine High by two of its pupils in 1999; and the second being another fatal shooting two years later at the bowling alley of the town (which the two students had attended before they went on their killing spree in 1999). Hence the title. Moore confronts supermarket chains, the media and even pro-gun lobbyist and actor Charlton Heston (as President of the National Rifle Association). In 'Fahrenheit 9/11' (2004), Moore focuses on the administration of George W. Bush and his 'War on Terrorism' agenda. The film explores the government's handling of the terrorist attacks on September 11th 2001, explores the dubious relationship between both Bush administrations and the bin Laden family, questions the possible role of Saudi Arabia in the attacks, and looks at the fallout of the tragedy and subsequent events from a personal angle through the testimony of Lila Lipscomb, a Michigan woman whose son was killed in Iraq. Finally, In 'Sicko' (2007), Moore examines the US health care system. Moore attempts to highlight the contradictions in a system that, despite costing more per person than any other in the world, ranks last among developed countries. As well as taking a swipe at the wholly for-profit health insurance and pharmaceutical industries, Moore compares and contrasts health provision around the globe, including Canada, Britain and France.
